Quick, Even Application
Here’s a smooth tip for spreading carpenter’s glue from reader Cary McAdams. Slide a piece of 1-in. diameter pipe insulation onto a 4-in. paint roller frame and use it to evenly roll on the glue. When the job’s done, just throw away the insulation. No more wasting store-bought rollers on a one-time job.
