typically i use lepages wood glue for my trim.. for small returns i use mitre pro 2 part adhesive and for structural work i use pl premium or lumber locputting down subfloor with glue and screws, so i called dr smith and the robot too!March 4, 2013 at 6:12 pm #15334
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.March 4, 2013 at 8:35 pm #15356
gorilla wood glue.March 4, 2013 at 10:39 pm #15358
anybody here like titebond?John SMarch 5, 2013 at 5:19 am #15364
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.March 5, 2013 at 7:05 am #15370
Titebond is my second glue of choice.March 5, 2013 at 8:12 am #15373
used elmers carpentry glue, switched to titebond.March 5, 2013 at 10:14 am #15379
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.March 5, 2013 at 10:33 am #15382
Is lee valley big in Canada, I have never heard of it before this forumMarch 5, 2013 at 10:51 am #15392
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.March 5, 2013 at 10:57 am #15394
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.March 5, 2013 at 1:47 pm #15418
Nick have you ever ordered wood from Rockler?March 5, 2013 at 3:02 pm #15437
No because fortunately they have a store 30min from me.March 5, 2013 at 6:12 pm #15469

im the same for lee valley,, but their only 8 minutes from me.. the only thing i might order through them is a new tool belt.. they now carry a limited selectoin of occidental toolbelts that can only be ordered, they dont stock themputting down subfloor with glue and screws, so i called dr smith and the robot too!March 8, 2013 at 7:57 pm #16015
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)March 14, 2013 at 8:27 pm #16793
i like the woodcraft by me, but that is because it is closer than the rockler and there is no lee valley near meJohn SMarch 15, 2013 at 3:54 am #16816
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.March 15, 2013 at 10:56 am #16881
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.March 23, 2013 at 5:09 pm #18043
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 hahaJohn S
