    Here's a helpful comparison by Titebond to choose between their glues

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

    Of course we know the difference between interior and exterior. Interior should NOT be used in exterior, - but what is the harm or drawback to using exterior glues for interior use projects?

      Their chart lists the exterior premium (II) and ultimate (III) glues as an :effective alternative" for indoor use.
      The down side or drawback is that the II and III products are more expensive than the original (I). Something they did not quantify in their charts.
      At Lowes, a quick check shows the I, II and III in the 4 oz size cost $2.98, $3.98 and $4.98 respectively.

        Thanks. I didn't think it hurt to use exterior for interior. The prices on that scale don't bother me.

        The way I understand this type glue is the longer open time (assembly time) the stronger bond you will have. This is due to the glue having more time to soak into the wood fibers, thus a stronger bond.

        This is also the reason not to use old glue that has thickened and will not penetrate well, thus is a weaker bond.

        I remember seeing a bunch of comments on various sites that recommended adding vinegar to thin glue that had thickened with age. I question what this will do to the glue. This information Is probably about as useless as all of the suggestions to make your own chalk paint using plaster of Paris, flour, and any number of white powder substance to latex paint.

        OTOH, you don't want glue too thin either. You can't get it to stay on vertical surfaces.
