Typically when I need to adhere some large or heavy item to a board, I'll use a strong bonding glue with a clever name like Gorilla Glue or Epoxy Heaven. This weekend, I decided to use my glue gun! The glue gun took a while to heat up. Then there was a weird smell, and when I fired it, the glue came out quickly. I wasn't prepared for it. It got messy. These thin glue strands, like a spider's web went everywhere! At least the glue worked. I don't think the bridge will be coming off the plywood. That's what we want with glue, though, right?
