How to Store Your Wood Glue for Longer Life
How to Store Your Wood Glue for Longer Life

Most adhesives manufacturers stamp an official shelf life on their products to limit liability in case poor storage conditions cause product failure. The stated shelf life of wood glue typically is one to two years.

How to Best Avoid Drywall “Button Pops”
How to Best Avoid Drywall “Button Pops”

Using two separate testing methods, Franklin International measured the relative changes that occur with wood framing, metal framing, drywall and drywall adhesives in four different environmental conditions. Our test results showed there is not a single cause behind buttons and pops, but a combination between seven key factors, with wood moisture content being the biggest contributor.

Glue and Toothpicks Save Stripped Hinge Holes
Glue and Toothpicks Save Stripped Hinge Holes

Over time, cabinet doors can become literally unhinged when their screws loosen up in stripped holes. An easy fix: place a drop of glue in each hole and stuff in a toothpick or other sliver of wood. Let dry overnight and add more glue and wood if necessary. Once the glue/wood mixture dries, drill new pilot holes if necessary, and drive the screws.

For perfect plywood edging, cut it extra-wide
For perfect plywood edging, cut it extra-wide

Despite your best efforts, solid-wood edging will slide around after you apply glue and then clamp it to the edge of a plywood shelf or panel. To make things easier on yourself, cut the edging about ?" wider than the thickness of the shelf. Then, you’ll have a little extra material top and bottom that you can rout perfectly flush using a flush-trim bit. (Don’t try to sand the edging flush – in a heartbeat you could go through the thin top veneer on most plywoods.)

Business cards as low-tech micro-adjusters

Fortunately, help is as near as your wallet. Here’s what you need to do: Set the approximate location of your fence and lock it in place. Then clamp a wood block to the side of the fence opposite the direction you want to move it a hair or two. Unlock the fence, place a business card between it and the block, re-lock, and check its position. Add more cards as necessary. For super-fine adjustments use dollar bills or scraps of paper.

Before you glue, do a dry run
Before you glue, do a dry run

The last thing you want to do is discover a joint doesn’t fit properly or that you don’t have enough clamps on hand after you’ve applied glue to the joint. So, put the glue bottle aside and dry-clamp the pieces first to verify the joint pulls tight, flat and square.

For most gluing applications, the built-in dispenser tips on glue bottles work fine for placing glue where you need it. Inexpensive aftermarket glue dispensers or ketchup bottles also work great for squeezing glue into tight spots.

Have you ever cut what you thought would be a perfect plug for a counterbored screw hole, one that would blend seamlessly into its surroundings, only to see it stand out because its grain is slightly off kilter from the grain around it?

Do the thread spread for even glue distribution
Do the thread spread for even glue distribution

Flooring installers know the importance of putting down a consistent layer of adhesive or thin-set mortar, and achieve that by using notched trowels. Similarly, you can get consistent glue layers on wood surfaces by using a coarse-threaded bolt. Here’s how to make a spreader like the one in the photo.

A new role for nails in project assembly
A new role for nails in project assembly

To assemble tricky-to-clamp projects, say an oval frame or a three-sided flag box, use nails to temporarily hold workpieces in place while the glue dries. First, dry-assemble the project parts on a piece of ¾" plywood. Once you’re satisfied that everything fits, apply glue to mating surfaces and drive finishing nails ¼" or so into the plywood to hold the workpieces in position. Use painter’s tape or waxed paper to prevent the assembly from sticking to the plywood. Gently remove the nails after the glue dries.

TiteGrab: Initial Grab so Powerful it Quickly Holds Heavy Items - Even on Vertical Surfaces

Titebond Ultimate TiteGrab Adhesive™ is an advanced polymer formula, specifically designed to decrease installation time of vertical applications. With twice the initial bond strength of most other similar adhesives, it grabs heavy materials quickly, reducing time and amount of bracing, and ultimately achieves a strong, permanent bond to porous and non-porous substrates. It bonds to vertical surfaces without slippage, eliminating the need for secondary support on the majority of applications.
