    Scott,you are clearly a bright bulb and a great help here. None of my theories on the product discount your knowledge.

    I can't help but wonder if Scott was sent regular mdf. I don't think mine was marked on the edges. We've all seen

    I looked up that stuff recently. What I found is all the cedar does is mask the smell of wool ! The moths don't hate ANY
    smell. But they love the taste and aroma of wool.

    I like the Bullfrog stuff. I think a common uncoated nail is a good indicator of when the material is getting weak.

    I've used it and not seen creep. But mainly I use the powder Weldwood stuff. I still say creep is an old white glue thing.
    You could ask the Titebond reps, they always answer fast.
