This page contains notes on specific construction issues I ran into. I've
included notes on working with
crown molding and
panel molding separately.
Different kinds of glue behave very
differently. I started out using Elmer's Wood Glue, which worked OK, but it sets
slowly and it tends to run. I had a few places where the glue ran, and it
doesn't stain the same color as the wood. Even after you sand it off, it still
gets into the grain of the wood, and it never really looks quite right.
My favorite glue was Titebond
Molding & Trim Glue. This glue is thicker than Elmer's, runs less, and
seems to set faster. You still have to make sure you don't let it ooze out the
sides of the paneling. It might not run, but if you put too much on, you'll
still squeeze it out the sides and have the same problem of it not staining the
same as the wood.
