The gel variant of superglue will work, put a few dollops of glue on the wood and stick it down, you won't have a lot of time to work with while it sets, but you won't have to worry about mixing the epoxy.


A thinner superglue will sink into the wood fibre creating blotches everywhere and hindering its ability to stick properly.

I would use epoxy or contact cement.


There aren't but two options: do it FAST, or do it RIGHT.

It's a very good idea to plank the plastic deck with wood. I'm building it myself and I took the same approach. As seen in pictures, I've used super glue. That was happening some two years ago and it's holding them really well.




Be sure though you put the glue only at the bottom side, and just a hair of it, otherwise it will squeeze between the planks fi you push them, as I've used 2.5mm wide strips.
