What do/did you think of it. I’m mostly interested because of the no drip aspect.

I’ve never seen that one. I keep Titebond Thick & Quick around for the times I’m gluing molding or something like that. It doesn’t run either.

The info sheet says it’s “Polyvinyl acetate emulsion”, so I am going to guess that it performs similarly to a thicker version of other PVA wood glues. I take that to mean that it will bond to wood, but I don’t know why I would need a thicker version of wood glue.

I have used it. To me it acted just like regular liquid nails. It comes out like caulk and unlike regular glue does not run down a vertical surface. A small dab will do and not squeeze out. Don’t know what you plan to do with it but the few times I have used it have been on construction type projects where no fancy finish was required and if any squeezed out paint covered it.

If you want to glue down sub flooring over floor joists, that is the stuff to use. If you are trying to build furniture or cabinets, I think you will find it too thick and hard to work with. I have used a lot of it and it works really well on construction projects.

Wow, It comes in a 2.5 fl. oz. squeeze tube. I wonder how many tubes it would take to do a sub floor? Probably hundreds. And it says “sheet goods, wood flooring or ceiling applications.”

Regardless of the container size, I will stick with my opinion. Why don’t you just buy some and try it if you don’t want someone else’s opinion? If what I am telling you is wrong, then you can come back and say “I told you so”. If I was right, then you might mention that too.

The question was “Anyone use Liquid Nails furniture glue?” And if yes what did you think of it?
How did you get to laying sub floors from furniture glue?

So I’m going to take it that you haven’t use it so you don’t know how it works for furniture.
