I'm re-doing my bath and I realized that the 5/8" square glass accent tiles would be a great cabinet pull knob if I can attach them to plain silver-colored metal square knobs.

What's the best way to attach the glass tiles to a metal cabinet knob?

Thanks!

If you're just looking to glue I would suggest either E6000, or a two part epoxy. If you're going to glue and seal then I would do just the E6000.  Smiley

Ok, thanks, I know I've seen those glues at the store. What kind of sealer? Since it's going to be in the bathroom, it might be a good idea to seal against water, I guess.

If you are just gluing the tile to the top of a knob, sealing will not be needed. If you're putting on some other way I would for sure seal with Polycrylic.
