Worrying about wood glue is something that you need not do very long. All you need to do is find out what other successful woodworkers are using.

This is actually a pretty good secret to figuring out just about anything, and you can use it to solve a lot of your initial questions/dilemmas in woodworking.

To save you some time, all you need to do is pick out a brand of wood glue that has a nice long track record of success. Titebond is one really good example, and that’s the glue I use.

From there, you can look at the three main types they carry, and decide if you need any of the features that the different versions offer.

For example, Titebond I is the general glue that can be used for all interior projects not intended to get wet. It’s your bread and butter wood glue.

If you need something water resistant, they make Titebond II, which has all the awesomeness of the original plus the water resistance feature.

They also have Titebond III which is recommended for light food contact and has a darker look.

Depending on what you need, you can pick the best wood glue simply by staying in the same brand and getting the glue with the features you need.

For most of you, just pick up a bottle of Titebond I Original Wood Glue, and you will be very happy with the results.

Happy building.
