Preferred way to adhere Unitrack ?

What is your preferred way (for those of you who have ever tried) to adhere Unitrack to a basic wooden train table ?

Need ideas so I can stick this stuff on the tabel for the little roundy round I'm building for my son's friend.
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

I use either clear silicone caulk or Liquid nails for projects.Both work rather well though I think the silicone caulk will stick better.

I used Liquid Nails for projects as well, important safety tip: do not use any adhesive on turnouts. they will stay in place by being held in by the connected track. I had to replace one when some LN oozed in and fouled the mechanism.

I use plain old Elmer's Glueall.  After it dries, if you want to redo or move track it's an easy lift-off.  Dries clear and you don't even notice it.

I use the store brand tacky glue - i other words, thich white glue.
Run a bead along where the track meets the board and smooth with your finger, like caulk.

Sticks well and peels off if you need to change it - been peeling up three year old track this weekend - I'll do it again.
