Help! My dog is a glue sniffer!

Riley has become addicted to the tongue and groove adhesive. I can't place a bottle down anywhere without him sneaking over and taking a whiff. Bad dog! Go chase a squirrel!

Look at yourself! Oh, how low you've sunk!

Little carpenter trick for anyone laying tongue and groove flooring. When gluing the inside of the groove, only glue the bottom of the groove. The directions will say glue both sides of the groove but this is a big, sloppy mistake. If you glue the top of the groove then you increase your chance for glue to squeeze through the seam and you'll spend more time cleaning than laying floor. This trick was passed down from a floor guy three decades in the business. Thanks Roger.
