If you ask a professional woodworker about the best wood glue, then the answer is Titebond wood glue. This glue has been in the market for more than 70 years and it still leads the market.

Then, the innovation continues as there is Titebond III Ultimate that is the first totally water-resistant wood glue.

Application of wood glue looks very easy and simple. But, many people fail to apply wood glue perfectly. Sometimes, the fails are also caused by the wood glue they use. Make sure you use one of Titebond glues. Then, follow these instructions;
- Make sure to clean and dry the wood surface that will be joined together.
- Smoothen both surfaces before being joined. The smoother the surface, the better the result will be.
- Before applying the wood glue on the surface, read each Titebond wood glue open time.
- Apply the Titebond wood glue on one side amid the open time.
- Join both surface
- Wait until it dries.
The drying times for each Titebond wood glue can be different. It is better to write the time where the woods are joined so you can estimate whether the glue has been dried or not. Besides that, it considers the climate of your area. The hotter climate may make the drying times faster and for the cooler climates may slow down the times. If you live in the cooler climate, you can use heat lamp that light the joined woods to dry or fasten the process of drying until all chemical particles bond perfectly.
