Too funny! Hey, years ago I remember reading about an Army study on glues. This was before the yellow glues I think. They declared Elmer’s white glue the strongest. If you cut a 2×4 on a 45 and glue it up properly, then try to break it. It will always break someplace other than the glue joint.

Since then we have the yellow glues. They behave like white glue but are more moisture resistant and whereas with white glue you have to scrape or plane it to get it off, yellow glue is sandable. Trying to sand white glue after it dries and the wood around the glue will sand but the glue will pretty much remain as a high shiny spot.

So, a friendly comment. You’re video’s are technically well made. This one is funny. But for the amount of effort they seem low on content?
Waiting for the next, Dan.

the glue holder idea is a good one. I currently lean them upside down in the corner of a cabinet, but inevitably knock them over. I’ll give this idea a shot. can’t cost anything to try.

Great I agree with you on the Gorrila brand (see my review) and Titebond is a solid choice for woodworkers. Thanks
