If you are a hobbyist or a wood worker I am sure you have worked with a lot of different wood glues. Well, the old standard is the Yellow Carpenter’s glue and you may think if you have not been to the hardware store recently but that is the only one that is out there.
Well, guess what, there has been a tremendous explosion in some really great wood glue products. The old standard is in fact the yellow glue and it is a great product. You have got to understand that these things can be affected by water. In other words, if you get a joint wet over time it can come apart. So, you have to be careful where you used those. They can not be used outside or on areas where there is going to be moisture.
They have got actually dark wood glues so they tended the glues and they are really fantastic when those joints are dry. The glue itself is actually pretty dark and that is very, very helpful so you do not have nice white line where you have a wood joint.
Now, what are the ones that excite me a lot is a wood worker’s glue. This one is made for finished carpentry inside where you need to have a quick clamping time where the glue sets up very rapidly and you can not pull them apart. It was really great when you are trying to put together small pieces to trim and I will tell you what, it is about up to five or ten seconds.
Urethane glue is actually waterproof. It sticks wood to wood, glass to wood. It is basically a multipurpose glue, almost like an epoxy and what it does, if it uses with the water that is in the air and some water that actually that is in the wood actually chemically cure the half of the clamping because as they start to cure, the glues actually turn into a film and they fill out of the joint. So, you really have to be careful with the Urethane glues. They are a little pricey but they are really worth it especially if you need some thing on a waterproof area.
Remember, one of the most important thing is if you do use glues, you got to clamp them, one of the most important aspects that really makes the joint strong. Remember, glues are fantastic. There are a lot of different out there, make sure you buy the right one.
