Final result is m ostly the same… in terms of gluing joints.

However, if you want to make rub joints, like putting glue blocks into corners… hot hide works well, while liquid hide will still require clamping.

You also cannot hammer veneer liquid hide glue.

If the goal is solely to have reversible glue joints in furniture – liquid hide, or Old brown glue is just fine.

Don’t know if the liquid hide would be inadvisable for instruments like violins. I like hot hide better…. but if I really needed the open time for a more ccomplex glue up – the liquid has its place.

I would as Patrick Edwards himself… or Shipwright on LJ… as they are both deep into the French Marquetry work, and use all of the glues, like Rabbit and Fish proteins as well.
