Make Your Own Glue Spreader / Roller
Gluing up some wood and don’t feel like using your finger, or buying a costly glue roller? Grab your trim paint roller, and a 4″ foam sleeve, and strip away the foam! It’s that easy.
Clamps are off the rack, wood glue in one hand, and stock in the other, it’s time to spread some glue. But you don’t have a glue roller. What to do?! Find yourself a trim roller and a new 4″ foam roller, and get to work! Tear away the foam from the sleeve, then wire brush away any residue until all that is left is the plastic sleeve. Voila, squeeze out some glue and get rollin’.
