Hi Geoff,

The 2 that spring to mind are Polyeurathane (sp?) or PU as it's known. This is great but foams up when curing so must be clamped and clean up can be a pain!! The other option is Epoxy Resin which I have found will stick pretty much most things together (except some plastics apparently)

HTH

Hi Geoff,

I would avoid using epoxy to stick stone to wood because the glue doesn't flex. If the wood moves, the stone (or slate) cracks.

One that works well and allows some movement is silicone sealer. I use the clear version but you can get it in all sorts of colours!

I always use silicone as it allows movement.

Cheers

Third vote for silicone sealer, I use it for all tiles and not had any problems yet.

5th vote for silicone here, but PU glue is a close 2nd option for me. I have used both on metal plastics and stone to good effect.

I use a lot of slate and wood, the best glue I've found for sticking anything and everything is lumber jack, its sold in builders merchants, however like others have mentioned silicon is flexible which helps but the hold isn't as strong.
