The shooting forests deforestation for solid wood furniture industry is among of climate change contributing agents.
Indirectly, this pressure is caused by furniture joints failure due to poor gluing technology based on improper use of different glues to different wood species leading to weak wood-glue joints.
This book is developed from research findings of the Performance Tests of Wood Glues on Different Wood Species Used in Wood Workshops.
Three popular wood species of C.
glandis and E.
maidenii were tested against five glues of Woodfix, Bullbond, Ponal, Fevicol and Coral found in the market.
On contrary to Wood dealers’ preference, results revealed that among five wood glues tested in the laboratory, Coral performed better with an average shear strength of 4.18 N/mm2,3.23 N/mm2 and 5.42 N/mm2 for Cypress, Teak and Eucalyptus respectively.
The developed table of guideline from this research can be useful in wood workshops on proper glue selection to a particular wood species so as to meet glue-bond strength.
This will secure furniture market and reduce pressure to forests for furniture production because of the strong existing furniture due to their strong joints.
