Keep in mind, I do scroll saw portrait, pictures and such. I am not gluing things that will be under stress.

I do it one of two ways. And I do it often, I use a glue like Titebond “Quick and Thick” or Weldbond All Purpose glue, there are others also. The Titebond is what I currently have. I put dabs of it on the back of the front piece, where ever there is enough area to put dabs, lay the front piece on the backer, and weight it for about a minute. Flip the glued pieces over and look for any squeeze out I can see, remove it with an X-acto knife or any tool that will fit in the area. Just scrape it out carefully. These glues dry clear so what you can’t get probably will not show.

The second way, I lay the front piece face down, give the back of the front piece a spray of spray adhesive point straight down and attach it to the backer. So far I have not had one separate on me. If it is a picture like piece, it is not under pressure, so you don’t need gluing like you would in a joint of gluing boards together…
