A wood glue is a repair material which can be found in storage cupboards in houses, boxes in warehouses, and sheds which is used to repair weapons to an useable state. The hardware store in West Point is an excellent place to find wood glue and many useful tools relatively early in the game.

Using wood glue requires at least level 2 in carpentry to use (except for repairing hammers, which require level 1). Currently, wood glue is the best repair material for the majority of weapons in game.

Wood glue is a multi-use item and can be used repeatedly until the container has run out. Each full bottle has 5 uses of wood glue, however bottles do not always spawn completely filled, and may have fewer uses.

Effective chance calculations are based off of default loot settings, and median zombie density. The higher the density of zombies in an area, the higher the effective chance of an item spawning. Chance is also influenced by the lucky and unlucky traits.
