I have nevver had any luck with Gorilla glue, it always sets up rock hard in the bottle ater one or two uses. I have a glue up coming that needs something like Gorilla Glue.

Lots of reading here, and on other furums say to store Grolla Glue upside down to keep it from setting up in the bottle. Something about the way the bottle seals with the glue against the cap or something like that.

So I put together a quick and easy glue bottle stand for a small bottle of Gorilla Glue. No sense after all in storing a large bottle. I just don’t use enough to make it worth the effort…

I had the same issue with Gorilla Glue, and didn’t buy a second bottle. Might try it again, because it does have some good characteristics, so let us know how the stand works out. By the way, Gorilla Glue does not fill the gaps well in poorly fitting pieces, and apparently shouldn’t be used in those situations. Hence, you might consider using the Titebond III for your chair. Not sure if the sawdust trick would mitigate that issue.

I keep all my gluing supplies in a shallow box I constructed for the purpose. I have one at each shop. If I decide to get some Gorilla Glue, I would put the upside down stand in the glue boxes.

Anyway, thanks for the tip, and that makes me somewhat more inclined to buy Gorilla glue in the future. There was a good article on it in a recent issue of FWW.

Happy New Year. The holidays have kept me busy with family events, but things have finally quieted down…

I have been out since the beginning of the Holidays, sorry guys…. Have a major pet health issue. Looks like we will need to be putting down our 20 year old cat soon… Haven’t felt like shooting video or anything, just taking care of family… I will be back soon though.
