Easy Steps to Gluing You have to master these basic skills before you can rely on the glue to do its work.Remember that many furniture projects are held together solely by glue.When done correctly, screws, nails and other mechanical fasteners can be dispensed with altogether.
Different Glues - Different TechniquesIn a recent article, "Knowing Your Glues" (Canadian Woodworking, Feb/Mar '06, Issue #40), I reviewed some of the more common types of glue used in woodworking.I mentioned that the most commonly used glues are white and yellow PVA.
Personally, I use yellow glue for the vast majority of my needs.I use Lee Valley's 2002 GF high solids PVA for more difficult glue-ups where I need a little more open time.For glue-ups where perfect wood-to-wood contact is unlikely, and for bent laminations, where I need high strength and creep resistance, I use 24 hour epoxy.
PVA glue bonds chemically within the cell structure of the wood.You'll hear about 'glue-starved' joints where joints fail because of too little glue, but this is misleading.Glue-starved joints happen when there isn't enough glue to sufficiently wet both sides of the joint.
