And… I can’t believe I forgot to mention another huge benefit of hide glue and that’s that it fluoresces. That means with a $10 UV flashlight you can see excess glue before it bites you in the rear at finishing time. Also, even if you choose to stick with PVA glue (lots of puns lately, sorry), Titebond makes Titebond II with fluorescent dye added. I use it exclusively when I’m using PVA glue and you’d be amazed at how much glue you miss cleaning up. Finally, off the subject of glue, a UV flashlight is immensely effective at finding flaws in your finish that you’d normally need just the right angle of light or to feel it with your fingers in order to know they’re there.
