I just wanted to ask you all what you think is the best glue? I have read people use construction caulk like liquid nails but I have also read about people building with silicon caulk and just letting it set. What do you all recommend from experience?

Cheers,
Steve

I used liquid nails on mine and haven't had any problems with it.

Liquid nails is GREAT for applying thin flat sheet like beadboard to a wall... Using it as a glue... not so great. Go to a good hardware store or woodworking store and get some TightBond III or Gorilla Glue. Either should be GREAT for bonding and will hole up to the moisture.

Well, I suspect my freezer will die long before I ever have to worry about the holding power of the Liquid Nails on the collar. If not, I owe you a Coke!

Silicon. It's amazing how well it holds the collar on. I just moved it down a set of stairs without a problem.

Oh... Wait. Are we talking about the glue for the mitered joints or fixing it to the freezer itself? I think I got all bass-ackwards on my thinking...

I used gorilla glue on the mitered joints, clamping them. And used 100% silicon caulk to glue the collar to the keezer.

Yeah I'm just talking collar --> freezer. I think I will go with the silicon as it would be the easiest to remove and start over.

The gorilla glue was awesome when putting the collar together. I just need another coat or two of polyurethane and then it is going on the freezer. My temp controller is supposed to be out on my porch waiting for me

Yeah, to clarify, I used wood glue on the corner joints, but they are also held with L-brackets and screws. I used the Liquid Nails to secure the collar to the freezer.
