i needed more glue today so i bought a different kind , its gorilla white glue . it says it will dry natural what ever that means so i used it to glue a box joint and i do not see any glue squeezed out like it normally does . i can feel it but cant see it . tomorrow i will wipe stain on it to see what happens . it says it paintable and sets in 30 minutes to the point you can handle it . good stuff so far .

WE’ll be watching to see if it is satiinable ;-))

I use Gorilla white glue, Elmers white glue and Titebond II & III. The Gorilla and Elmers does dry clear as opposed to the Titebond which dries yellow. The Titebond is the thickest and holds on vertical surafces better then the other two when getting ready to do glueups. As far as holding power, I’ve never had a joint fail using any of them. The Elmers I use more for gift type projects that won’t get hard use. The Titebond I use in cabinetry and the Gorilla I use in furniture. So far, so good on all of them.

I’ve never had stain work on squeeze out on any of the glues thought (though I’ve tried by accident :-( ). I make sure all glue is cleaned up.
