Default RE: Is "Wood Glue" dead?

The key to faster drying wood glues is to fit better joints and pressure on the joint while it dries. If a joint does not fit well, most people simple apply more glue to fill the gap. However, the joints are not very strong and take longer to dry because of the excess glue applied. Take the time and get a tight, gapless joint. You only need apply enough glue to cover the glued surfaces. Wipe off excess glue that is squeezed out of the joint. Use pressure while drying. It doesn't take long to dry. It may never dry as fast as CA will cure, but it will be a higher integrity joint.
