Fast strong glue can be used on many projects and creates a strong bond. This project can be done by most people with a Bernzomatic torch and just a few essential, inexpensive materials.


  1. Apply wood glue to one of the edges of wood.
  2. Ignite the TS8000, and carefully heat the stick of hot glue.
  3. Once the glue has been heated, apply the hot glue stick to the same edge of wood that has wood glue.
  4. Combine the pieces of wood together, be sure to make a strong bond between them.
  5. Once the pieces have been glued together, take sandpaper and sand the edges of the wood to get a smooth finish.
