If you are a woodworking professional or are a company, then you have probably realized that you need specific supplies in a certain quantity to be able to get a project done. For most professionals, one of the worst supplies to run out of is adhesive.

Woodworking adhesive is stronger than most other options and since it is a commercial grade product, it is made with higher quality materials. As a result, you are unlikely to find local businesses that sell the adhesive in the quantity and brand that you need.

Luckily, here are some of your alternative solutions to finding an adhesive supplier:

Woodworking Shows

One of the easiest ways to find a woodworking adhesive product that comes in commercial grade is to attend a few woodworking shows. Woodworking shows feature not only woodworking products, but the materials that you need to make your product.

In addition, you will find both manufacturers and suppliers at the network. This means that if you need an adhesive supplier to provide you with a certain quantity, then the woodworking network likely has the person that you are looking for.

Finally, since there are multiple booths that feature adhesive, you can ask each booth what makes their product better than others. This way, you will find something that works best for you.

Contact the Supply Network

Some woodworking shows are specifically geared toward manufacturers, in which case, you should be able to tap into your adhesive suppliers network. When inquiring into whether the show has an adhesive suppliers network, you should also discuss what adhesive quantity and brand you are looking for.

If the network does not have the specific adhesive that you need, then the professionals managing the function will recommend different options to you that are most similar to your original product.

Ask Around

Finally, in the off chance that the above two options are not viable, then you may want to ask around. The best people to reach out to are those who have been in the woodworking profession for years and that may have friends in the industry that may be able to help you find what you are looking for. If that does not work, then your final option is to look for a new woodworking adhesive. The good news is that with so many products on the market, you should be able to find a great solution.

International Woodworking Fair has a comprehensive adhesive suppliers network. The fair has connected woodworking professionals with manufacturers to meet the needs of both parties.
