Titebond makes a HUGE array of glue. This comprehensive coverage of the glues available from Titebond will help you make the right choice.
Strength of glue
Before jumping into the different types of glue it’s important to understand that all of these glues will more than satisfy the strength requirements you have for your projects. When your joinery is sound and you pick the right glue, the glue joint is stronger than the surrounding wood. If you’re a non-believer, have a look at this video about the strength of glue joints.
Titebond Original, II and III
Of the whole stable of glues that are available from Titebond their Original, II and III are the most mainstream products, and probably the glues you’ll use the most. Original is great for your everyday furniture and cabinet making projects. II is water resistant and the go-to for outdoor furniture. III is waterproof and the glue of choice for projects that will be wet most of the time, like planters.
A question we get ALL the time: instead of keeping a variety of glues in the shop, can Titebond III be used for all projects? The answer is yes, it would easily satisfy all of your daily woodworking needs.
