Is 5 minutes long enough?

Postby vonspritz » Tue May 11, 2010 7:12 am

All the wood glues I can find say that they start to set in five mins. I'm assembling a small flight of stairs and its going to take more like fifteen or twenty- by the time I've coated all the wedges etc & got it all together. does it matter if it's started to set? What's the alternative?

Thanks for your tips

you probably don't want to be gluing your stairs together at all - screws might be better.
