Interesting video. The guy did a good job with tensile strength and impressed me with how strong most of the glues were in endgrain to endgrain connections. I kind of think that the shear strength [end grain to side grain] test was more a test of the wood itself rather than the glue. The tear out of the wood was telling in that regard. It would have been more convincing had he tested side grain to side grain for shear since that's the way most woodworkers would connect one piece to another. Having groused about that point though, I think he convinced me that Tightbond II or III or Elmers wood glues are better choices than any of the others.
