I was in Frank Klauz's shop a few weeks ago and he was using elmers glue.
I have been using titebond yellow, sometimes an elmers dark glue,
I know this is a matter of opinion, but figured I would like to hear the
pros and cons of each.... White PVA vs Yellow Aliphatic.
PVA creeps more than yellow, is thermoplastic; i.e, can be softened with
heat which is very handy because you can iron on edging strips. When mixed
with sawdust - or put into a slightly less than perfect joint and sanded
over - it makes a decent filler.
I use both. Type 2 yellow for gluing stuff together forever.

Some white glues are acutally wood glue. Elmers white glue is not
necessarily a wood glue.
Gorilla makes a White wood glue.
I use the glue that most closely matches the wood color. Light woods, white
glue, dries clear. Light brown TBII , medium brown, TBIII, dark woods, dark
I use this stuff a lot.
For large lay-ups of laminate, Wilsonart 3000 is incredible. That
stuff is insane.
I do like TBIII a lot too, I like the dark colour for those same
reasons you stated.
I used Gorilla for an outdoor situation------> what a PITA!!! but it
does stick, holy cow does it ever.
The comparative tests I've seen all have the resorcinal (Gorilla
foaming) results behind the yellow glue...
They're only advantage imo is the one-part waterproof where it's
actually needed; otherwise the pita factor is far too high as you say...
Marketing can do wonders... :)
If you want to pick nits,,,, Gorilla White Wood Glue is designed to glue
wood. I highly suspect that you could also use it add glitter to your
costume, glue pictures in an album, or glue together pieces of colored
construction paper to make a paper chain. I also highly suspect that the
Gorilla White Wood glue has a higher bond strength when used with wood than
the Elmers Glue ALL product would.
I would not necessirily want to use Elmers Glue All to put together an
expensive piece of furniture enen though it includes wood as a material that
it will glue. It is more of a CRAFT glue that is suited for all around
projects including paper, wood, fabric, leather, and ceramics.
I would me more inclined to use an Elmer's Wood glue specificially suited
for woodworking. I have used both of those referenced below.
However the reason I prefer to use the White Gorila wood Glue is that it
I gave my reasons and if you had any other reason to be here other than to
argue I suspect you would not be asking this question. Cute how you came
back under a new name so every one would see you again.
None are. Resorcinol glue is typically marketed as a boat-builder's glue and
not as a woodworking product. Not so much because of its adhesive qualities
(it's _incredibly_ strong, waterproof, and solvent resistant) but because it
has a deep rich burgundy color with a very obvious glue line. It can also be a
bit brittle, as I recall.
