  • Best Wood Glue Available For Woodworking

    Hi, sorry if this is an old topic.. im new to wood working and was just wondering what type of wood glue everyones using? specifically for glue-up, and joining.. everytime i watch i see that they use titebond which doesn't seem to be available locally.. i recently saw small bottles of gorilla wood glue which i purchased and tested/compared side by side with stikwell and it just seems to work so much better but is a lot more expensive. what is everyone else using where do you get them? cheers and happy new year!

    JayL sells Titebond locally: https://www.mybenta.com/search.php?q=titebond

    You can also try Elmer's Wood Glue, available at National Bookstore.

      I use stickwell(yellow glue) on *my projects and never had problems. I screw them to hold together since I do not have long clamps. For me wood glue is sufficient for most wood projects. The wood will often break before you can seperate the glued pieces. There are other better glue but price wise, yellow glue(stickwell) is best in my opinion

        I go for Elmer's glue, there are two kinds, interior, and exterior, available at ACE hardware.

            Ive tried something like that before, i think pioneer is the brand I used. There might be other manufacturer. Its powder that I mixed with water, the glue hardens like epoxy unlike yellow/white glue that bends or seems rubbery.*

              Yup! Pioneer wood glue is in powder form mixed with water.
              Yan actually ang alam kong wood glue dahil ang mga karpintero sa amin nung maliit pa ako, yan ang gamit.
              Lately ko lang nalaman na may wood glue ng in thick lquid form ala elmers glue.

                i am done with stikwell, and the troublesome mixing of part a and part B in pioneer glue, discovered Ace carpenters Glue a long time ago then tried Titebond 2 or 3 and Gorilla Glue....but i recently discovered that Elmers, aside from its long time favorite, Carpenters glue, has now Wood glue max that is waterproof and stainable much like Titebond 3...i got 3 bottles from a recent xmsa exchange gift giving. i still have some carpenters glue to consume before i try it...there is also a trick in gluing wood...the surfaces to be joined should be smooth enough before appling clamps..pressure should not be too much to starve the joints with glue...and the strength of your joints also relies on the type of joint you make...butt joint being the weakest unless it is part of a breadboard end joinery. buy elmers and you cant go wrong imho. its available at Ace.
                of course there are other glues out there for specific uses...like the construction glues which i really like (no more nails, no nails etc)...its quick work for anything...also dont forget the power of the little cyanoacrylate glues...its quick to join small parts for toy making.
                my 2 cents.

                  "Best" is a relative term. It depends on the specific need of the project. And also on what the woodworker values more.

                  CA (cyanoacrylate) glue, a.k.a superglue, for small parts that need to set quickly... Titebond 3 for projects that will be exposed to water (outdoor furniture)...
                  For complicated projects that you can't assemble quickly you need slow-setting glue (long open time).

                  If you think your time is more valuable than the glue then you need one that is ready to use out of the bottle. If the cost of the glue is more valuable than your time then you can go with the cheapest that requires preparation.

                    I think you mistook Pionner wood glue with Pionner epoxy. Yung epoxy meron Part A and B. Yung wood glue ay powder lang.

                        There are also resinous trees/wood that dont go well with yellow glues...i think polyurethane glues appeal to them tho i have no experience...i also got some cowhide glues and it has specific purpose and yes it also joins wood.

                          Elmer's Carpenter's glue for me. It flows very well from its bottle. Pioneer Wood Glue is also OK. I use Stickwell only for floor tiles. Too much hassle to use because it doesn't have a convenient applicator. (I don't consider my finger convenient :-) )
