This article analyzes the behavior of surface finish and pressing time in glued pieces of eucalyptus wood. The importance of the study lies in verifying the influence of two variables (surface finish and pressing time) on the gluing of wood pieces for the furniture industry over time. For this purpose, the quality of adhesion of Eucalyptus urograndis wood pieces with polyvinyl acetate adhesive and the behavior of the wood to shear in the glue line are evaluated. It was necessary to produce test specimens according to the ABNT-NBR 7190 standard; three different surface finishes were evaluated on the faces to be adhered and three different cold pressing times, a variable that has not been analyzed in previous studies. It was possible to determine the shear resistance in the glue line and also to observe the percentage of wood failure when performing the destructive test on the test specimen 1 year after being glued. The highest shear strength was obtained for test specimens without surface finish and with a pressing time of 24 hours. With the results obtained in this study, the optimal surface finish and pressing time to be used in the furniture industry is evidenced.
