Hi,

The short question is, what is the best way to attach bending lauan to a plywood frame?

The longer version if you have any other insights: I am student working on a project that is roughly 14' by 9'. It is made of large pieces of 1/2" lauan plywood ribs that I milled and which intersect and are joined together at 90 degree angles with each other. My issue is the best way to attach the bending lauan to this frame. I have milled the lauan pieces out of 1/8" either 4x8 or 8x4 depending on how I need it to bend so they should fit the frame relatively well. I have continuous 2" high plywood nailers at the top and bottom edges of the frames where I can attach the skin. I have heard to use construction adhesive. Is that the best way to attach it? Should I use small nail with a nail gun to hold the skin on in addition so it doesn't spring back? The smallest radius is 3" and I am using 1/8" bending lauan. Thanks for your advice. -Alex
