What is a good glue for wood?


I want to repair a door where the screws are torn noose from the frame hinges. I plan to drill, install wood dowels, and redrill the screw holes.
What would be a good glue for the wood dowels? I have 'Elmer's Glue All', but is that good enough? Should I get special purpose wood glue? What brands are reliable?

Thanks.

I’d get an actual wood glue for what your doing. Tightbond 2 or 3 are good glues. Tightbond 3 is waterproof so it’s always nice to have around.

TitebondII yello glue is one I use most often, TitebondIII is a water resistent version.

But if it is the jamb side screws, just replace the screws with 2 1/2-3" screws. They work better because the go into the house framing and reduce or eliminate door sagging problems.

Titebond or gorilla wood glue. That's the two that I personally use.

I have to agree longer screws are the way to go. Gorilla glue if you must glue

Gorilla glue fan here too. You could also fill the holes with a suitable epoxy product and skip the dowel part of things.

I'm sure Gorilla glue has it's purposes, but I do not use it for anything. Tried it, had real bad results. It needs moisture to work??? It foams up and spreads pieces apart unless firmly clamped, and even then, it foams out the edges and needs cleanup after it's "dry"??? No thank you. Use a good WOOD GLUE like Titebond II for best results.

Just my 2 cents.

Gorilla glue is good stuff imo (although I rarely use it) but all of the issues you mention can be avoided if the user simply would read and fallow the directions on the label.

Well, of course.

MY experience with it was when it first was introduced, as a wood glue, with NO WARNINGS at ALL on the label about needing moisture, nor anything about swelling/foaming.

In general, another Titebond user here. I am not a great fan of Gorilla Glue, and frankly had thought that it was more gimmick than anything, but have now used it a few times for detail joints with treated lumber, and have found it to perform well. The first time I used it was on an A-frame for an old school house bell, and to maintain a bit of authenticity, got a bit creative with some of the joints for the cross braces, etc., and those joints seem to still be as tight as when I first laid them out. Also, I have a friend who makes very nice jewelry boxes, etc., not magical ones DM, but still very nice, and he uses Gorilla Glue quite often, because he says that his experience has been that it bonds better with certain species of hard woods.

Now THIS I believe. Especially the oilier ones like Brazilian Walnut.
But still, CLAMP IT TIGHT and expect to clean up a little "overflow foam".

Titebond for dowel filling.
Gorilla glue works well when you have a sloppy fit. Your dowels should go in tight.

Also agree with longer screws since this is obviously a problematic area. Filling with dowels is really more for when you change the hinges to something with a smaller screw or a different pattern...
