When I was a kid, I remember using Elmer’s glue for all of my school projects. Now that I’m an adult I still use Elmer’s glue for my DIY projects.

Elmer’s has a new line of hardware glues perfect for DIY projects and home repair. The new line includes:

  • Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Glue – It’s great for interior projects, non-toxic, easy to clean up with water, sandable and paintable. It also creates a stronger bond than the wood, meaning the wood will break before the bond does.
  • Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Glue MAX – Elmer’s newest all-in-one wood formula tackles indoor and outdoor projects. It’s waterproof, sandable, stainable, paintable, non-toxic, easy to clean up with water and bonds stronger than the wood. It also resists heat, mold and mildew.
  • Elmer’s Glue-All – This strong multi-purpose adhesive is great for interior projects, works best with wood, pottery, paper and cloth, dries clear and is non-toxic.
  • Elmer’s Glue-All MAX – This is an extremely strong polyurethane, multi-purpose adhesive, perfect for indoor and outdoor use. It’s also sandable, paintable and waterproof and works on a variety of surfaces including stone, metal and wood.

I used the Elmer’s Wood Glue Max while helping my son build his Pinewood Derby Car for Cub Scouts. The glue not only worked great on the wood parts, but it also secured the metal and plastic pieces. After the glue dried, I was able to sand and paint it with no problem.

I even convinced my wife to use the Elmer’s Glue-All Max to repair a piece of jewelry instead of her glue gun. After some initial trepidation, she tried it and was pleased with the results.

If you have some projects around the house that need to get done, you should definitely add some Elmer’s glue to your tool box and I’d like to give three readers a chance to win an Elmer’s Glue Prize Pack which includes all four glues mention above (approximate value – $15).
