Don't Use Smelly Glue Bellingham WA

Don't Use Smelly Glue

Don't Use Smelly Glue

Buying glue by the gallon costs less, but  it may not be a good investment if you use glue infrequently. After a while, leftover glue can develop a bad smell.

Butconsider what your project is worth and whether you want to risk jointfailure for the price of a bottle of glue. Most woodworking glue has a one-yearshelf life. Even though it's tempting to buy a big bottle tosave money, it's better to buy glue in a size youknow you'll use up in a year. Here's a good tip: Write the purchase date on the glue bottle.
