Asked this question on another forum but wanted to get another read before moving forward..if there is space between the top of the shank and the bowl(that I can see through) on my MM, can I just fill it in with a little wood glue to seal it up? I'm pretty sure I can but wanted to check..

Thanks in advance...

Did some research real quick for ya; doesn't look like that wood hurt; would use carpenters glue and just let it cure for about 24hours as long as the space is not to large.

I modified a cob into a full (almost) bent. I used Elmers Wood Filler to plug the gaps and glue shank in place. See thread "Full(er) Bent Cob.

I think MM uses wood glue to attach the shank to the bowl.

I'm deffinately no expert but from looking at my cobs I'd bet MM uses elmers wood glue in the firstplace. Go for that super hold, gorilla glue it :)

Go with Wood glue, it does not expand and works great. I had to fill a few cracks in my main Cob and that is what I used. Mix it with some corn flower or corn starch to make a paste to fill larger gaps. The corn flower is, well, corn, so it tastes the same as the cob. Also, wood or elmers glue does not have any polymers or strange binders that might be bad when burned.
