Glue & Gluing

Quick Links:

What kind of wood glue do you use?

We generally use a wood suitable PVA.

They are all generally the same as long as you get a PVA wood glue. We just use No Nonsense PVA from ScrewFix as it is a good price and easily accessible.

Would you ever put grit on gluing surfaces?

We don’t put grit on surfaces when gluing as we don’t believe it is a benefit.

Why do you use PVA, not hide glue?

We use PVA for convenience reason, strength values, shelf life and longevity. Hide glue is perfectly suitable for a lot of situations.
