CWW: I don’t think I have the grapes to take stuff out of the clamps in less than 6-8 hrs, and since I don’t glue at 0700 or work until late at night, that pretty much means to let it dry overnight. Maybe when I make unstressed things, like bowls, for us I’ll push the time. When I called TiteBond about it, the agent said 8 hrs should be plenty (warm and dry environment) but to not sand for 2-3 days. He said the wood may change dimensions a tad but the glue would not, and would require more sanding anyway. I have had problems with my bowls, glued one day, sanded and oiled the next. I have made 128 in bowls in the last year and maybe I’ve been lucky. Too, they are pretty much 5/16-3/8” thick except for the bottom (3/4-1 1/4”) so they can dry pretty quickly.
