Do you ever get confused about what type of glue to use on your woodworking projects? Do you wonder about correct preparation and application? Which clamps to use and how long to leave them on? How to clean up the mess?

This class, part of BARN's Woodworking Basics series, engages you in a conversation to answer these and other questions focusing on materials and tools in the Woodworking Studio. The goal is to give you more confidence in this important phase of your project’s construction and provide you with a better result.

This class is a component of BARN's Woodworking Basics Certificate program, which includes 14 classes and a mentored final project. Learn more »

You do not need to be a certificate student to take this class.
