I just got a 100bdft of plantation teak to make a table and benches for a customer and am wondering about what glue to use for the assembly of the top etc. This will be outside. I have two part epoxy and will probably use that but was looking for a little input! Thanks, Nick

I've only done a little work with teak. The one thing I remember was having to clean all the glue joints with acetone BEFORE applying any glue. Teak is naturally very oily and the acetone helps remove any excess oil before the glue is applied. BTW, I just used plain old yellow glue and had no issues.
