Hello, I am trying to join the end or edge of a sheet of plywood to a flat side of sheet metal with ho-hum results. I can not use mechanical fastners and this project will require the use of a liquid base bonding agent of some sort.

I will only have one shot at doing this again, so your suggestions are greatly appreciated. I have a small test piece now to try various adhesives before I commit to the final glue up.

The joint is not load bearing and will have to support a chunk of 3/4” plywood, 2 ’ x 3’. The sheet metal is typical flat mild steel, 12 gauge.

What would you use?

My first choice would be epoxy. Polyurethane glue might work, as well.
