    I haven't done a lot of this type of work Daryl but Gorilla Glue and Weldbond both claim to adhere wood to glass. Info on Weldbond can be found here.

      I have used a two part epoxy that comes in a double tube like a siringe. This way there is no measuring. It worked very well gluing a wood frame to a mirror.

      I can't remember the name but I found it in both Home Depot and Lowes for just a couple of bucks.

          I'd steer clear of the Gorilla Glue. It's a polyurethane and it expands as it dries, kind of like the foam you would use around a window. Gorilla Glue is tough stuff, but I still haven't found a use for it in woodworking. It makes for terrible glue joints...it pushes the wood apart, even though it's still rock solid.
          I recomend using silicone caulking to glue to glass. It comes in a clear, it adhere's really well too. Any squeese out, is easily washed off if you use a latex version, or you can wait for it to dry and peel it off. It will also allow for wood movement, where as a superglue will not. This is what I used for building my mirror.
          As a matter of fact, wood movement is probably why it came off the glass in the first place...something has to give.

            I agree with Jeff
            Silicon would be your best bet. I thing the epoxy will also fail in time due to wood movement.

              There is a welding glue I use that works great for just such as you speak- It comes in a silver tube , found in the glue section in the paint section at wally world. I can't read the name but my tube is all crinkled from my grubby little hands on it but I have had great sucess in using this for tons of hard to glue projects-- it even fixed a leak in my air mattress I have to sleep on...

              Silver tube --in b;ister pack -- black lettering-- named --hum has no name but made by Homax-- black blister pack just says heavy duty welder on it-- it is clear and has a fabulious bond.

                  I've been using a glue that I get from Sloan's for glueing my BB to acrylic. I haven't noticed a problem yet. It also dries clear.

                    Try a product called E6000 . Its a great adhesive for gluing acrylic to wood, it might work good on glass as well. Dale

                        CA glue

                        Another option, is CA glue. Its fast and strong.

                          I've seen a lot of references to this CA glue. What is it and where do you get it?

                            CA glue is !

                            Mike,

                            CA (Cyanoacrylate) glue is the same as "crazy glue" except in comes in different viscosities.

                            Its sold in all kinds of stores including home improvement centers.

                              CA Glue

                              I use a product called Rhino Glue, it is a CA. It is also a bit pricey but worth it, I use it on all my projects that require glue. It will stick anything to anything. So be carefull . . .
