Subject:
Gorilla glue and boiling water don't mix!

Roger Dunn
>While some can learn from my mistake, others are probably smart enough not to have tried it, I offer the following. I roughed several green cherry burl bowls and used Gorilla glue to attach waste blocks with clamp pressure and let sit to cure for three days. I boiled the bowls and their waste blocks for an hour and all joints failed. It is time for do-overs.
