PVA. I tend to use EvoStik but I don't think the make matters much. All the well-known brands are pretty good IMHO.

Cheers :wink:

IMHO forget Titebond, it's an Ok glue but there are better glues out there and for less money,

Try Everbuild waterproof D4 grade, unlike Titebond 3 it dries clear, 10min set time, been using it for years.

Get down to your local Toolstation 1lt will set you back £5.98p :shock: .

I'm building a kitchen with the exact same glue - no problems so far.

Where are you getting that price for D4 Rob? Toolstation usually are hard to beat on price but I always like to them know when they are not the cheapest. :mrgreen:

The OP has his answer, so could I broaden this thread a little, please?

I have always used PVA glue - which seems to create a bond stronger than the wood itself. Why are the other products better? Is it drying/setting time (I leave PVA overnight), finishing effect (colour, workability), gap filling, or something else?

When I come to replace my glue I am open to trying something new, as long as I know why......

In-Excess, Salisbury...they'd almost run out last time I looked, but tend to get in new supplies fairly regularly. A litre for £4.95 - Rob
