    I had an old wood worker tell me that a great trick to hiding Brad nails or screws is to mix some sawdust with wood glue to fill in gaps. Obviously the sawdust should be the same color as the wood for best results

    For finer woodworks or front face pieces, it's better to NOT wipe the excess glue that squeezes out. Let it dry and use a sharpened chisel to cut it off. Wiping glue leaves a thin layer that may clearly show when varnishing … saves time on the sanding job.

    My father use to do a lot of woodworking and taught me a trick back in the 60's. Mix the wood glue with a fair amount of sawdust from the piece you were joining. He claimed the combination held a lot better than just the glue and it also blended better so if you missed sanding it off the face, it would not show in the stain.

    Removing dry glue from plastic or skin really is weirdly satisfying.

    @steve_ramsey you mention using a board on top and bottom of the ones you are clamping together to keep the surfaces flush. Specifically you mention lining them with packing tape. Is there a brand/type that you prefer, and which side do you put facing your work piece? If you have any links, that would be perfect. Thank you!

    That Weldbond reminded me of white PVA glue, is it the same thing?

    After a couple years, what is your opinion of WELDBOND?

    In 2016 you were just starting to use it.

    I have to say, 9 and a half minutes on wood glue I thought this was going to be a waste of time but, you nailed it

    Hi Steve.
    My Elmer's glue container is a little bit dry.
    Can I mix it with something that turn it more liquid?

    Check out brayers for spreading glue. Basically, silicon or rubber roller.

    Crestabond M1-05 is by far the strongest adhesive I've ever used. If you need to glue 2 different materials together, this is your stuff. and its pretty inexpensive and comes in a 2 part tube, you can leave the top off indefinitely and it wont go off until you mix the 2 parts. Wood to metal, metal to fibreglass, fabric to fibreglass. Just 10 minutes curing time and your done. It can act as a filler too, if you've got a gap of 4 or 5 mm to fill, slap it on and let it cure, sand it off, job done. Fantastic stuff!

    Use a wet rag to wipe off excess glue , that is much easier than sanding material afterwards…thought this might be helpful

    Say, you could enlist the help of the Lilliputian men pro-bono. they are great at clamping ,holding things down etc… you see,The Lilliputians are a society of people around six inches in average height, but with all the arrogance and sense of self-importance associated with full-sized men. ya you might encounter a few Larrikin lads amongst the clan,but it's all in good taste mind ya.
    a very bright glue video indeed. know your glue's potential..AND make sure you glue is fresh!!

    I am planning to build "open "baffle" speakers but I can't find, commercially available, MDF that is thicker than .75 inches. Can I glue together multiple sheets (or slabs – new guy!) to get the thickness I need?

    I use a lot of fish glue. Nothing mentioned about fish glue. When spreading glue use your little finger and you won't get it on the next piece you touch.

    Hi Steve. I'm working on a 3D chess board for mothers day and am unsure of how to fasten all together. My hope was to buy a set of dark wood and light wood that I could add a clear coat to after it was assembled and sanded but I didn't have any luck finding that. So now my thought is to stain the pieces the two colors i want then assemble the board. I'm concerned with wood glue because of the clamp forcing it out of the sides, i dont want to resand the peices and have my stain be uneven. Also, I'm unsure of just how strong spray glue is. The Weldbond seems like it could since it's pretty clear. I would want to use it pretty sparingly I think though.

    Any tips?
