When working with wood, it is inevitable that wood glue will be used to secure a joint. The instructions on the bottle may indicate a particular drying time, but is that the time that it takes the glue to dry or is that the waiting period required for taking off the wood clamps?
The question is, how long does wood glue take to dry?
There are a number of factors that will influence the drying time. There are also a number of ways to test whether the glue is in fact dry or not.
