If you want things to stick, use this http://gorillaglue.com/ . I've used it for my hives for the last couple of year with no ill effect. You apply it to one side, wet the other and clamp/pin together. 20 minutes later the excess foams out of the joints (remember that the wet foam will still stick things together) after 60 minutes you can cut the foam off.

I mainly used because the budget hives I got were a bit warped and I want to make sure they stayed together.

Mike.
