Shop Wood Glue Online
Wood glue is a wood adhesive that is used to fasten two separate pieces of wood together. You could use this when working on furniture or shelving from scratch, but also to mend wood items that may have broken and need repairing. Liquid in form and solidifies later, wood glue is easy to work with and wipes away excess amounts before it dries, helping to make sure your project looks neat and professional.
With a varied range of woodworking glue at BUCO, you can choose from Alcolin and A. Shak options in a range of sizes and formulations — designed to suit your specific needs.
Which wood glue is best to buy?
Here are some tips to keep in mind for when you are setting out to use a wood adhesive:
Make sure you have the right glue for the job before you get started. Don’t feel persuaded by a multipurpose adhesive claiming to work well on a variety of materials — wood included. Rather opt for a dedicated wood glue and if you’re unsure, discuss your needs with one of our in-store sales consultants.
Mask Your Joints
There are many stages to any woodworking project, so between glueing, sanding, varnishing, and staining, you might choose to complete each section before you assemble it all together at the end. This will save you time but also give your project a more professional finish. Remember to keep your joints clear because the glue won’t adhere as well to varnish or stain (and this could actually weaken the bond). Consider masking the surfaces with tape where the glue will be applied before you varnish or paint your wood, which is easy to remove when you’re ready to apply your wood glue. And remember that if you’re using water-based products, a no-bleed tape is best.
Use a suitable applicator. For intricate joints, a flux brush is a good choice because it allows you to get into those hard-to-reach grooves, corners, and crevices. When you’re applying wood adhesive to a larger surface, go for a plastic notched spreader which will help you to achieve an even spread across your joining surface(s). A great tip if you don’t have a plastic spreader handy is to use an expired bank card.
You’ll want to clamp your wood in position so that you’re sure your alignment is correct before you apply your wood glue. But did you know that the metal part of your clamp will react to any glue that touches it, and will probably leave a mark on your wood? A great way to avoid this is to put a layer of wax paper between the clamp and the wood or over the bars. This helps keep the wood adhesive away from the clamps and makes cleaning up an easy job — so it’s a win-win on both accounts.
