Repairing Chair With Gorilla Glue Gel (Wood to Wood)

In this blog post, I will guide you on how to use Gorilla Glue Gel to repair wood furniture. I have personally tested the product and can attest to its ease of use and effectiveness. Let’s dive straight in.

Why Use Gorilla Glue Gel?

Gorilla Glue Gel is specially formulated for bonding wood. It offers a high bonding strength and water-resistant properties, making it ideal for repairing wooden furniture.

Steps to Repair a Chair with Gorilla Glue Gel

  1. Prepare the Wood Surfaces: Clean the wood surfaces that need repair. They need to be free of debris, paint, oil, or varnish to allow the glue to bond correctly. You can lightly sand them if the surfaces aren’t rough.
  2. Apply the Gorilla Glue Gel: Use a small brush or a piece of cardboard to spread a thin layer of the gorilla glue on both surfaces. You really don’t need that much, and using too much will stop it from drying properly.
  3. Press Together: Press the two surfaces together, ensuring they align correctly. Clamp them together until the glue dries.
  4. Let it Dry: Leave the chair to sit for 24 hours to allow the Gorilla Glue Gel to fully cure.
Press together and then clamp overnight

My Personal Experience

I used Gorilla Glue Gel to fix a broken chair and it held up incredibly well. The chair is now as good as new and can withstand daily use without any issues.

I can confirm that with correct application, Gorilla Glue Gel indeed does a great job at securing broken or separated wooden parts.


Gorilla Glue Gel provides an effective solution for repairing wooden furniture. For maximum effectiveness, ensure the wood surfaces to be glued are well prepared and that you allow enough drying time. Happy repairing!
