I have a pattern for a fancy Welcome sign that I want to put on the outside of my house, so I wanted a waterproof glue.
My Technique was to use a mini foam roller and polyurethane glue I used a small tray and put a small amount of glue on the roller, working it in the small tray (a cheap aluminum cooking tray) until there was an even amount on the roller. I then used the roller to apply glue to the back of the cutout fretwork ( I left the pattern on the front and used a slightly oversized piece for the back) placed the fretwork on the backer, set it on a workbench with a piece of plywood that completely covered the fretwork, set weights on it (books) and let it sit for 24 hrs. Worked like a charm, no squeeze out at all. I then cut the outside of the pattern (both the top and the backer). So far so good.
Just and idea to think about.
