    I use Titebond II most of the time and I'm with Carole on her suggestion to sand the contact surfaces before glueing up. I even go a little bit further and 'tickle' the areas with the point of a fine burr in my Dremel to make sure the glue really keys into the contact surfaces.

    I make sure...

    If possible, try sanding the areas to be glued to dull the finish. That will help the adhesion. Also, judicious use of CA glue might work. I’ve used it for Corian, which is not porous, so it might be worth a shot. You can always recreate your finish on scrap and do your testing there, before putting...

    Looking at your post again I see that I didn't clue in to your request to find a product for gluing-up finished pieces - so - I'm gonna add a bit to my answer.

    If you have to finish your pieces before glue-up then think about masking the surfaces that will eventually be glued together so...

    I use a couple of different glues as well, but agree that the key is the application. Quality glue, enough to adhere while neither being excessive nor skimpy. And a reminder.....When discussing the subject with newbies while demonstrating, I am astounded by the number of the glue "failures"...

    On most of my fretwork projects that require a glue-up I use alternate (and frequent) dabs of CA glue and yellow carpenters glue - seems to work well and have never had a separation that I know of.

    I use Weldbond but I have also used Titebond II. The secret is to get a even coat of glue on the two surfaces being join and not just a drop here and there.

    That’s funny Linda. As my daughter would say, just nod your head and smile. I stopped dipping a while back when I was running out of time. Cedar are the first to sell....

    So very many people smell the wood that leaving them unfinished is kind of a good idea. What cracks me up is when someone picks up a finished intarsia piece (I display at the fair while demonstrating)....they stroke the wood appreciatively.... then they smell it and most will comment how that smell...
