Default What's your go-to box sealing product?

Just curious as to what you guys have had good experience with as far as sealing the corners of their boxes. I know fiberglass is best but what's everyones go to choice besides resin? I'm not looking to spend $45+ just to seal up the corners

In the past I've used DAP dynaflex sealant

Why not just use wood glue?

To be honest, I never really thought about putting wood glue in the corners

I've only used Gorilla wood glue for the joints. Just bought 4 big bottles yesterday for my wall

Edit: After reading a few tests, I might return them and get TB3. I've never had an issue with Gorilla though so I'm not sure

most importantly... joints need glue where they meet. {not just on the outside}

my go-to's
#1) Elmers wood glue.

#2) titebond II

#3) 100% silicone


I used to like PL200 and 'liquid nails'.. but the company changed hands or something and they just aren't the same anymore.


Elmers and titebond are thin glue. (cuts need to be straight)

silicone is thick and easy... (cuts can be f'ed up) {but it stinks.. and it causes cancer in California}


I have painted elmers & titebond II on interior corners with a brush after assembling boxes with imperfect joints.. it works pretty well to seal it the rest off the way. {works like resin}

if you need to fill a small void from an imperfect cut, you could mix up some wood glue and saw dust and make a paste.. works great

I just like to have the extra sealing factor of putting someone over the corners
