I have used the clear silicone adhesive on mirrors up to 10" full thickness with no difficulties. Check out Richard Berry's book on Telescope making, he describes a great technique and a wooden mirror cell as well that works real well.
Just make sure the Adhesive is fresh stuff. I have read reports about it not curing at all if it is old or has been opened more than a few months.
