I told you I’d share my favorite tools, gadgets and supplies as I put everything away in my new workshop. I have to confess, I didn’t get passed filling up the pegboard before I had to detour to take advantage of Wes going out of town for a week. (I try to do major demo when he’s gone because he hates living through it … and I’m just considerate like that! Ha.)
First up: Glue supplies. I’ve tried a few other brands but Titebond is my favorite glue for the kind of “Woodworking” I do.
The Original has a pretty fast dry time and the Titebond III gives you a little more “work” time which is good if you’re gluing up a large surface. You don’t want it drying before you’re ready!
I don’t use any fancy spreading wheels or brushes, just my finger (for small surfaces) and a small silicon spatula (for larger areas). Pick one up at the dollar store next time you’re there…you’ll be glad you did!
I squeeze out a puddle of glue.
Then spread it out with the spatula.
Then you let the glue dry on the spatula. After it’s dry, bend it …
the glue cracks and you peel it off.
