If I need to use ados, the spray stuff is best. Still messy but less so than liquid.

Standard wood glue for the wood :)

Import to test any glue on the tolex you're using. I've seen tolex shrink or worse, wrinkle (a whole 4x12 cab! thankfully it was mine, so I could redo if wanted) though that can take weeks.

Is that the genuine Fender blonde tolex?
I've got a spare speaker for my California Blonde & have been tossing around the idea of making an extension cab.
