Elmer the Bull — yes, he’s Elsie the milk Cow’s husband — has been helping woodworkers stick projects together for over 60 years now. Now the famous bull brings us some really handy stuff: stainable wood glue.
Normal wood glue doesn’t stain well — or at all really. So instead of making it green or hot pink to let you know when you have some areas showing, Elmer’s designed glue that excepts stain. The new glue contains “real wood fiber” (read: sawdust). The fiber accepts stain, hiding the glue.
So hopefully this adhesive won’t leave you crying over your latest project after you found a few drops of glue that escaped sanding — and stand out like a sore, um, glue spot.
Street pricing starts at $3 for a 16 oz. tube.
