Small rollers come up big as glue spreaders

Strong glue joints begin with a uniform and sufficient layer of glue on mating surfaces.

The best way to achieve that on broader surfaces, such as laminations for turning projects, veneered panels, or furniture legs is with a foam roller purchased at any store that sells painting supplies. For most projects, the 2"-long rollers work best. Simply pour the glue into a paint tray (you can buy narrow ones that work especially well), spread it with the roller as you would paint, align your workpieces, then set your clamps. Before starting, have all of your clamps and wood pieces ready; once you start applying glue you don’t want to let the roller sit idle for more than a few minutes between applications. If you can’t avoid that, wrap the roller in plastic and cover the tray to keep the glue from skinning over.
