doesn't creep

CA is hard and brittle when cured, not soft and creepy. Its chemistry and properties are similar to its close relative, Plexiglas. This property may be a problem in wood joints. They won't have any "give". CA is not very tough so any stress on the joint may make it fail. Complicated segmented assemblies may have lots of cross grain stress which could lead to failure. The moistrue issue is still under investigation.
