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.
