I grabbed the ends of the boards and tried to force them apart. While I began with a small amount of pull I ended up pulling with all my strength (Ok, I’m 67 years old, male, and have arthritis in my hands… nonetheless I can press 200 pounds). The joint did not budge, crack, or do anything other than stay together. I then tried to twist them apart with the same result. No machine was used to test the board, they were not held in a vice or any clamp. It was my personal strength alone.
About two weeks ago I tried a similar test with the same result, but I had used pine in the same approximate dimensions. As this was “real wood” I thought the plywood test might yield different results. They did not.
Please try this test yourself. It is easy to do and the results are stunning, in my opinion.
In essence, the days of adding reinforcement to mitered joints are over. They were probably over years ago, but all my woodworking reference books talk about the lack of strength in mitered picture frame joints because the end grain to end grain joint cannot hold with glue alone. Modern glue, like Tightbond III has turned this advice stale.
Now, a woodworker can align the joints properly, cut the wood squarely, and make sure the wood is clean and glue the joint. If the joint is well made the glue alone will hold it together. My test, although not scientific, shows that a mitered end grain to end grain joint will hold under reasonable conditions.
Tightbond III has shown itself to be extremely strong glue.
August 8, 2015: more tests.
After the above test I decided to try the same idea on thinner plywood. Using Tightbond 3, I glued together ½ and ¼ thick plywood at a 45-degree angle (typical picture frame joint), all end grain with zero reinforcement. Glue alone. Each board was 2 inches wide.
My photo shows the method of gluing. After letting the glue dry for a couple of days I tried to break the joint as I did before, by pulling it apart with my hand/arm strength.
The joint on the ½ inch plywood could not be pulled apart. Pulling or twisting made no difference, the glue joint held.
The joint in the ¼ inch plywood failed pretty quickly. While it was not easy to pull apart it wasn’t hard either. The joint broke at the glue joint. The wood did not fail, the glue joint failed.
While these tests are not scientific I think they show the great strength of Tightbond III glue. At the ¾ and ½ inch sizes in plywood, end grain with no reinforcement at all, the glue held against all the strength I could muster. (I know technically plywood does not have end grain, but I use the term as a reference to the short side of the wood)
This is a great product for woodworking.
(Another apropos quote from the label is "Ultimate.")
My favorite thing about this product is the cap, which seals air tight, like it's brand new, after each use.
