I agree with Rich. Once you have a bond that is in excess of the strength of the wood it becomes a moot point. Also of course there is stronger and weaker hot hide glue. I don’t know what gram strength Fine Woodworking used. Then there is water content, temperature, assembly efficiency, etc. So the hide glue that they used, the way they used it and at the consistency and temperature they used … was 75% as strong as pva.

Rant over.

My blog series is here:

Also Rich only addressed strength. HHG also differs from LHG in the several issues related to tack time like rub joints (that he touched on) and hammer veneering. In a warm shop you have time with HHG to do most simple glue ups. I only use LHG when a glue up is complex.
