I use Elmer's Carpenters Wood glue. It does have a shelf life. Glue
20 years old probably would not be used on any furniture. Buy some
fresh glue, and try not to buy a larger amount than you can use in a
year or two. Keep cool, keep from freezing.
Maybe you can use the old glue to make some Silly Putty?
I've always used Elmer's wood glue, it is a good product. More
important, I have a container of it that is at LEAST 20 years old and it
works fine. It has thickened a bit but it's still yellow, just a little
hard to get out of the bottle. Because of this, I bought a new bottle
of the stuff because I never throw anything away... Still, I never had
any glue joint fail using the old stuff.
If by WOT, you mean Way Off Topic, it is, but only if you think this is
a political only group.

Nah, I meant Waste of Time. For some reason in my usenet circles it
meant something different than merely off topic. The "OT" prefix is
usually what I see for that. Since '95 or so , beats me which
the "usenet old-timers" use more offten...
