In the following adhesive pages I have outlined the four most common and best adhesives that are used in woodwork but there are many others that can be used.
PVA stands for Polyvinyl Acetate and it's a type of aliphatic resin that is also water based and is available for interior or exterior use but is also non toxic.
This glue is now very popular and in many opinions it is the best timber adhesive available because it dries clear, it's very easy to apply and has super strong holding strength on wood.
They can creep over time but a tight joint helps to prevent that. Because of its many great features Polyvinyl Acetate is excellent for bonding woodwork joints together or as a furniture and carpentry adhesive.
Polyvinyl Acetates are very versatile and are relatively fast drying but excess glue must be wiped away after applying or it is very difficult to remove when dry.
Polyvinyl Acetate glues are available in white and yellow and are relatively inexpensive compared to most glue, they also have a reasonably long shelf life.
The white one is better for interior use because moisture weakens it over time and the yellow is better for outdoor use because it is water resistant but it doesn't dry completely clear.
