Ever get confused about what sort of glue to use on a project? I’m twice degreed in Chemistry, and I certainly do. A great resource is This to That,, a comprehensive “glue advice” database run by a theatrical prop-builder and some buddies. They say:

We aren’t a front for any manufacturer or some National Glue Association (if such a thing even exists.) Our recommendations are totally impartial. We have advertisers but they don’t influence our selections at all. And they never will. We promise.

The folks at This to That were kind enough to give MAKE permission to reprint their main glue chart in The Maker’s Notebook, so it’s available in the notebook’s reference section in the back.

In the Maker Shed:


Pick up The Maker’s Notebook ($19.99) for all your big ideas, diagrams, patterns, etc. Exclusive to the Maker Shed: Sticker sheets and a band closure to customize your book.
