I always keep a supply of acid brushes on hand for small glue ups. I find them a little too flexible so I usually cut the bristles back to about 1/2” long.
Another thing I keep handy for larger glue ups is a supply of motel key cards. They work well as pint sized trowels for spreading out glue. I haven’t tried it, but you could notch the edge with a pair of scissors for a real trowel effect.
Welcome to woodworking. You’ll find there are many ways of doing just about everything and each method is backed by strong opinions. Choose what works for you and keep making sawdust.
