    My favorite wood glue is the Lee Valley 2002 glue. Miter Bond is my favorite 2 part adhesive for an instant bond on mitres. PL Premium is my favorite construction adhesive.

    Yeah I forgot about Titebond. I use Titebond 3 for making cutting boards and butcher block tops as well as any exterior projects. It’s a great glue.

    I prefer the Lee Valley 2002 glue over the Titebond for general applications. It has a higher solids content and a little bit more open time.

    Yeah Lee Valley is one of the major places in Canada to get quality woodworking tools and supplies. They also ship to the US and have an office in Ogdensburg, NY. I worked at the Halifax store when I was in college.

    Sounds to me like the equivalent of Rockler Fine Woodworking in the US. Rockler is great for specialty woodworking stuff from exotic woods to hardware and everything in between.
