Do you buy thin stuff and laminate it? If so, what kind of glue do you use?
I've used Gorilla Glue, and it seems to hold fine.

Mark, I did laminate some 3/8" pieces with epoxy to make a thicker bait.
but if were to do it again, I'd probably ask them to special cut me some boards that are as thick as I needed.

I use solid when I can, too. I just had some 3/4" pine and wanted a 1 1/8" blank, so I glued some up with gorilla glue, clamped it overnight, and it seems to be fine. A happy accident is it gives me a centerline to work off of. I glue one face, and wet the other, then rub them together to spread the glue everywhere. It expands when it sets, so it fills any voids and it's totally waterproof. Of course, if my Envirotex Lite clear coat lets water in, I have bigger problems than a glue bond. )
