It was my first time to work with wood glue and contact cement, teehee, newbie that I am in this whole DIY/crafting thing. I got both from The DIY Shop. The Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Glue is especially helpful because it has a flat spout and you can use it directly on the wood without a spatula or anything. I used it to attach the wooden name letters from Papemelroti for Laz and Alo’s School Station. (Papemelroti has them in different sizes, colors, and font).
1] Apply just a thin strip of the wood glue. (In the photo above, I ended up using too much, and they spilled out of the sides of the letters. I used wet wipes to wipe them off the cabinet).
2] I then measured the cabinet and marked it with a pencil, so the placement of the name letters on each cabinet door will be aligned.
3] I secured the letters with masking tape while the glue dried.
4] Voila! So simple!
