Works as Advertised
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Received and applied the product. The glue worked very well, allowing time to stretch and move the canvas to the proper placement for success. I gave it the full 24 hours to cure as recommended then cleaned up the little excess with minimal effort using water sparingly where needed. Overall a great product the allows the novice the do a project with the skill of a pro.

Looks like Elmer's white glue
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Purchased both a quart of this glue and their matching tambour cloth--which really looks and feels like canvas. The glue comes with no instructions except NOT to let it freeze and to use and let dry at 80 deg. F. I called Van Dykes but they had no written instructions on file either. Anyway, the glue looks like thick white Elmer's glue and is water soluble (even that item was not on the label). I used a 1/4" knap paint roller and rolled adhesive on both the wooden slats and the fabric. None of the glue dripped down between my slats (thank goodness the stuff is thick). Pressing the fabric onto the back of the wooden slats was easy with just using my palms and I could move and stretch the fabric to position exactly where needed. My doors were a total of 5.5 Sq. Feet in area and I used about 2/3 of one quart. Using a paint roller is wasteful of glue, but the best way to spread evenly. Let dry for 24 hours under a heavy piece of 3/4" particle board in a warm room. Final results are perfect.

Tambour glue
This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

It's a little early to be reviewing it as the website requested because I'd like to see how it does with use and as it ages. It did settle a problem I had been researching about what type of glue to use to rebuild a 120 year old roll top desk tambour door. I've always got good products from Van Dykes so figured I couldn't go wrong. Along with their tambour cloth I restored the roll top. It did take me 1 & 1/2 bottles for complete coverage of the cloth and the door itself as I spread them on both. After 24 hours, I installed and used the door and it appears to function perfectly. I don't suspect there will be any problems with it as it will be in a climate controlled house and not open or closed many times a day. The glue was easy to work with and I'm satisfied with it so far. Had it been a longer period of time to judge how well it will hold up over time, I probably would have fiven it 5 stars.

The glue worked great. My only comment is that I wish the on line description would have specified the coverage. On the bottle it does. As a result I purchased way too much.
