How to glue two pieces of wood together.

Wood glues are very strong and ideal for helping you in your do it yourself home projects. If you apply the wood glue properly and dry it correctly, the joined wood pieces will never split. You can join two wood pieces to repair or make your wooden chairs or tables using wood glue. Ensure you select the right adhesive for your project.

Here are tips on how to glue two wood pieces together:

1. Select the right glue.
When joining wood pieces, ensure you select the suitable glue. You can choose super glue if you are joining repairing broken furniture or only joining two wood pieces because it dries very fast. However, when using super glue, the bond is not strong enough to resist a lot of pressure, and the wood might separate within a short time. You can buy super glue from the hardware store, or order bulk super glue online.

If you want a permanent bond, you should go for PVA glue. Polyvinyl acetate glue is strong and forms a durable bond between two pieces of wood. However, it is not water-resistant. It is not suitable for glueing outdoor wood. If you want to repair outdoor furniture, you should choose carpenter's glue; it is water-resistant. With the right wood glue you can join two wood pieces.

2. Clean off the surface.
Use a damp cloth to wipe any dirt or dust on the wood surface before applying the glue. If there is wood glue on the surface, scrub it off using a brush or use a knife to scrape to remove the glue to enable the surface to adhere to the new adhesive. Old glue residual can make the bond weak when joining the woods.

3. Joining wood surfaces.
If you are joining two pieces of wood with smooth surfaces, use a stiff-bristled brush to spread the glue on one side to prevent buildup and save time. You can then press the wood together to bond them. If you plan to join large panels, use a rubber roller to spread layers of glue on the surfaces consistently. Apply the glue on each board and press them together to form a bond.

You can use a syringe to apply glue on chairs you wish to repair. A needle helps you insert glue on the right places easily to prevent the chair’s rung from shaking. Apply glue to the joints when you are making a table or chair to create a strong bond as you join them.

4. Allow the glue to dry, then wipe the excess.
Using a damp cloth to wipe off the excess glue can add moisture and weaken joined wood pieces' bond. You should wait for about thirty minutes for the glue to dry and harden. Use tools such as a knife or a chisel with a smooth edge to scrape the excess glue gently.

Bottom line.
Wood glue helps you repair your wooden chairs and tables. Ensure you use the right type of wood glue for your project. Clean the wood surfaces you wish to join before applying the wood glue. Avoid using a damp cloth to dry off excess glue before it dries because the moisture can weaken the joined surfaces' bond.
