  • Melamine construction?

    Can anyone tell me what is the best way to fasten Melamine? The project will be a platform bed made up of modular pieces that I will need to build. I was thinking of using glue & biscuits. But what type of glue? Or is there a better method when using Melamine?
    Thanks

    There may be a problem using biscuits as carpenters glue probably will not adhere where the sufaces meet, rather, only the biscuit contact point will adhere. I've used coarse thread dry wall screws and pilot holes with success. Problem is the screws may show, but there are color coordinated caps available from several sources. Pocket hole scews will also work. In most items, like bookshelves and cabinets sold commercially, screw studs and cam locks are usually used. Although this requires a little more patience during construction, it does afford the ability to diassemble the project, should the need arise. HTH.
    there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

          Home Depot carries the screws made for the melamine panels. They come with cover caps to hide the heads
