    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.

    Titebond original for lots of stuff. I got a bunch of free bottles of Gorilla Wood glue (type II PVA, not that polyurethane cr@p) and like it pretty well, too. Only complaint is the nozzle gets clogged quite easily. Also use Elmer’s white PVA for things that I need a long closed time.

    Big fan or Rockler and Lee Valley. Rockler is about 18 minutes away, but I do also order from them when I need to get stuff in. Woodcraft moved just around the corner from Rockler, but the new WC owner is running the place into the ground. Lee Valley a couple of times a year as they have some high quality and unique stuff.

    Another good place is Woodworker’s Hardware (http://www.wwhardware.com)

    i like the woodcraft by me, but that is because it is closer than the rockler and there is no lee valley near me :(

    If you’re looking for anything from Lee Valley John, glue or otherwise they have free shipping on right now. I usually try and wait until they have the free shipping deals on to put my orders in, saves a bit of money.

    Titebond Original for routine things. Elmer’s white for chair repair.

    I got a bunch of free bottles or Gorilla Wood Glue ( the white PVA type II stuff, not the brown polyurethane that is just plain terrible). I like it.

    Epoxy liquid or paste when needed. CA glue when needed, for non-stress stuff.

    Where are you guys getting all this free glue from? haha

    Dan – I will definitely watch the free shipping deals in the future. That is a huge thing to take advantage of! Or, I can always ask the wifey for an early birthday gift :) haha
