Gluing bamboo stair treads

What should I use to glue bamboo stair treads? I went to HD and they recommend Roberts 1408 but it only comes in 5 gallon there. (I can order 2 gallon online but it's still too much for my need, only 3 steps for now) Can I use construction adhesive ? If so what kind? Thank you.


A picture is worth a thousand words.

Just get the quart tubes of construction adhesive , And a quart caulking gun , do it that way all the time never a call back ,You need an old board to set the tube on because it will drip . The reason is the const adhesive will stay firm and not flatten out till you force the tread onto it , that will help ensure the board is seated in the low spots . . I don't put a lot on , Just a strip every 6 or 8 inches
