Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cutworm Good Wood Glue
I really like this glue. It's easy to apply with a small brush or even your finger. It dries clear and is really strong. I use it in my shop for joining wood and to secure knots or small cracks and voids in my lumber. Because it dries clear it's also great for making repairs to wooden furniture. Just squeeze out a bead of glue on both surfaces, spread to cover the entire surface evenly, clamp the parts together and let it dry. Cleanup is easy with warm water. I would recommend this to all DIYers and hobbyists. Really handy product.

I used the Gorilla Glue for the first time to assemble a new kitchen drawer. The advantage I found was Gorilla only needs to be clamped up for a 20 to 30 minute period of time to hold tite. The glue dries clear and cleans up immediately with just warm water and a rag. I find no negatives for Gorilla just as most Gorilla products I have tried.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by joelav22 There are many glue choices, and every one has their purposes
I do a lot of woodworking (furniture, other small wooden items). An integral part is glue choices. Home depot has a great selection of products, and Gorilla wood glue is one of my favorites. Because woodworking is very dynamic, there is no "one size fits all" glue. In some situations, pros become cons. It's best to understand what you need in your glue before selecting one.
Gorilla glue has a very short open time. This means it sets up very quickly. This is great for gluing smaller items, or a small quantity of items that do not require a lot of "fussing around with" before clamps are slapped on. This is not ideal for things that need quite a bit of finesse like mortise and tenon joints. When I have something quick, need a strong initial tack, and don't want the piece to be in clamps for hours, I reach for the Gorilla wood glue.
Gorilla wood glue also passes Type II water resistance. Because it is not waterproof, it's not the best for outdoor pieces or items that get wet frequently like cutting boards. It is great for the occasional splash or spill.
This glue is also very light in color. One of my favorite uses for gorilla wood glue is mixing it with sawdust to make a wood filler. Because it dries very light, it's not noticeable at all. Again that short open time is also an advantage here.
It's also as strong as any other wood glue I have used. It's not a "super glue" like other gorilla products though. It is a PVA type wood glue so it does require significant clamping pressure to get it's strength like all of it's competitors.
Overall this is one of my favorite glues. When compared to other PVA type II glues with shorter open times, this is by far my favorite. Pictured is a serving tray I recently created using this glue. It is fantastic for gluing the miters, the splines (keys) that hold the miters together, and for gluing the handles in place. The strong initial tack, short open and clamping times, and low viscosity are just what a project like this calls for

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Whitney Very dependable wood glue!
The wood glue was super easy to apply and also dries quickly. It dries completely clear, but not shiny, so it looks like the wood is back together all in one piece - just like it never broke in the first place.
Also extremely easy to squeeze, apply, and clean up extra residue afterwards.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RJJ21 Quick Set time and strong
I have tried a variety of wood glues over the years and this product ranks up near the top of the list. It sets quickly (25-30 mins) and reaches full cure in 24 hours. The applicator tip works well and it seals nicely ensuring easy use next time one grabs the bottle for a job. The glue is very strong and will hold your project together without question.
