Which is the best glue for wood?

The glues I used in my tests:
  • LePage Carpenters glue. The glue I usually use.
  • Titebond 3. I heard that this was supposed to be a really good glue.
  • Gorilla glue. A polyeurathane based glue.
  • Weldbond. A water resistant glue, which I had used before for making lawn chairs.
  • Epoxy.
  • Hot glue.

How long should I clamp glued wood?

For most of our wood glues, we recommend clamping an unstressed joint for thirty minutes to an hour. Stressed joints need to be clamped for 24 hours. We recommend not stressing the new joint for at least 24 hours. For Titebond Polyurethane Glue, we recommend clamping for at least forty-five minutes.

Can you use a glue gun on wood?

Wood glue is designed to hold strong and create long-lasting wood joints, but it takes awhile to dry. In fact, you can use hot glue as decent method for clamping two wood joints together while wood glue dries. Add wood glue along the edge of the surface you want to join and leave a dry spot in the center.
