Gorilla GlueI have tried a few kinds of wood glue in the past, and nothing seems to live up to Gorilla Glue. This stuff bonds wood, stone, metal, ceramic, etc. It is totally waterproof, paint-able/stain-able, easily sanded and has a long open working time. It also contains no carcinogens and does not release fumes. If bonding wood, Gorilla Glue recommends dampening the wood slightly. You only need a little glue since it “foams” and expands a lot. In fact, it is good to be careful with it near finished surfaces. You may find it foams a little too much if you are not sparing with the application. Gorilla Glue creates a great, strong bond. Available at most home improvement stores.

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine!

  1. I’ve found and used a “3x faster and dries white” version in a handy
    2 or 3 oz bottle for about $4.00. Trouble is that I, in a haste to
    quickly mend a valuable china cup, mistook it for my Gorilla Super
    Glue (FANTASTIC STUFF – broken glasses hold up to 3 months at
    a time before my son smacks me in the head while wrestling again and I have to call time out to fix ’em). Anyway… the white stuff foamed as much as the original brown, and blew apart the cup again! Luckily no one was around when shards came tumbling off the display shelf and I was able to mend it after much scraping of the white foam.

    • Doh! I could see how that case of mistaken identities could occur with those small bottles. May I suggest plastic tumblers instead of fine china for your house (and for mine)! I like bulletproof polycarbonate! ; )
