Netherlands-based designer Erik Stehmann presents a furniture collection fully build with blocks of oak wood and glue. Collection consists of table and chair. “Inspired by the typical "woodworker" sentence: "Glue is stronger than wood”, I experimented with glue and wood to test this phrase. After testing lots of different types and brands of glue I discovered a glue that succeeded. By cutting a beam up in blocks, and gluing it together as a beam again, it became even stronger than the original beam”. Take a look!

  1. What kind of glue holds that well? I have heard the oft-used phrase by carpenters also, but my own experience is that glue is best used just for joints backed by woodscrews or dowels.
