well it would depend, if you consume it in liquid form, it is obviously harmful. However, superglue is generally not a water-based adhesive so once its dried it would not dissolve readily in water. As long as its hardened and inert, it may be ok. Obviously it also depends on the brand of glue, there may be some that will be safer than other depending on ingredients.

Either way, slate should be the better tool since it will be easy to move and easy to maneuver for maintenance.

Normally, people dont use silicone or glue to hold wood to slate since the stress will eventually cause the wood to splinter or the adhesive to break. I think most people have the wood attached via stainless steel screw.

no, stores sell wood attached to slate all the time. You may need to take it to a shop to get it done though as I dont think normal drills can drill slate properly.

Diamond-tipped drills should work. Just use the technique used for drilling glass. (ie, do it SLOWLY and keep running water over it)
