I'm a Bondo fan, myself.  The smell brings back childhood memories of working with my Dad.  They have a formulation specifically for wood that's available at Lowes but I don't know if it just the same old product repackaged.

I see contractors using PL to glue nail/screw framing together

I used Gorilla Glue to repair a 25+ year old rotted out swinging gate about two years ago. The thing sounds like a solid block of wood when it slams now. Polyurethane might be better if the beam is exposed to water.

Even good ole Elmer's wood glue will make a connection stronger than the adjacent wood fibers, but I particularly like the Liquid Nails products.

Does anyone have recommendation for a wood glue used in a field repair of wood beam.

 

I have an 8x10 with a bit of dry rot. I can remove the dry rot in its entirety by cutting a 2.5” x 36” piece out of the top of beam. I am considering doing so and gluing a piece of 3x8 into the removed portion.

 

I have checked the beam capacity for a reduced section and found it to be o.k. so I don’t actually need to consider the patch returning strength to the section, although I would like my repair to be structural.

 

Regards,
