    When using biscuits to help align and strengthen glued up solid wood panels…. Do you…. 1. apply glue to the biscuits 2. squirt glue into the slot 3. insert dry biscuits into dry slots I know they can swell and subsequently shrink, leaving dimpels if you sand inbetween. On my ongoing...
  3. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    Last time I bought glue, I decided to go for the mid-grade titebond II. Is it really that much better than titebond I? Am I missing out on some great feature of titebond III? I haven't had any joints come apart yet…anyone die-hard fans of one or the other? Is titebond original good enough?

    I have been making wall sculptures for a little while that consist of a 1/2" MDF backboard with hundreds of small wood blocks glued to the surface. I started using plywood as a backboard but had to much issues with warping. Using MDF seemed to fix that problem until this last large project I had...

    Working on my first project with breadboards….. My glued up top is 19" wide x 3/4" thick and I'm using a rabbet bit on the table router to put a 3/8" long x 1/4" thick tounge centered on the end grain. On my bread boards, I need to cut a groove that is 1/4" wide (centered) by 3/8"+ deep. But...

    Hi all, I keep attempting to make a beer mug and on my second attempt I got it completely turned and finished with beeswax. I then try the water test over night for 10 hrs just to make sure that it would hold. When I checked on it, this morning, I discovered I had created a modern art...

    I'm trying to build a table top out of some thin old red pine wood strips i salvaged, and have been racking my brain for ways to make it work. The strips, once planed, jointed and ripped are only 1/4" thick and 1-1/4" wide; too thin to T&G. I need the table top to be at least 1/2" thick, so i...

    I need to glue two 3' pieces of half-round cherry to the front of a mantelpiece. The way the fireplace is built, regular clamps are out of the question. As I see it, I have three options: 1. Contact cement (which, quite frankly, scares me, plus I'm afraid of the squeeze-out of organics onto the...

    I'll be bonding Melamine false drawer fronts to MDF drawer front panels …. The pull I'm using will have two 1/8" threaded screws aiding the connection, and I may sink a couple sheet rock screws from the inside. What adhesive would give me a good bond and be easy to use? Spray contact adhesive?

    After gluing a drawer with Titebond 2 I later discovered that one if the dado joins was not pushed in completely. The glue has already cured overnight. I have used PVA glues (Titebond and others) for heat activated veneering and wondered if I could soften up the glue enough to fix the joint. I...

    I'm making a coffee table from a walnut slab. I am placing three bow-tie shaped patches on each side of the slab to stabilize a crack that ran through the slab. I've already filled the crack with epoxy, but want to use the patches to protect against further movement. My question is whether...

    I'm in the process of hand jointing some really gnarly cherry boards for a chest on chest project, and to make the Stanley #7 move smoother, I've used paraffin on the sole. It occurs to me, this is wax, so I'm wondering: Will the paraffin possibly have adverse effects on the Titebond properly...

    I have found a free source of a type of UHMW plastic. It works great for work surfaces- especially a gluing surface. It can be cut and worked with all standard tools. The only draw back is that the surface is not completely smooth. To get the free stuff, just make friends with a local restaurant...

    Just thought I'd ask around what people are using for wood glue. Elmers Carpenter Glue is my glue of choice. What about you?

    A couple of days ago I tried to sharpen some pencils and the pencil sharpener did not work. This morning I needed more pencils sharpened. I tore the sharpener apart and found that the plastic gear that connected the grinder portion to the moter broken. Here is a picture of the gear: What...

    Hello. I am building a farmhouse style table for our house and have a technique question. I will be edge joining five boards for the top. Is it better to use a biscuit jointer to correctly position the boards for glue up or can I drill holes and use dowels? I also see that rockers has a...

    I'm making a quick manger for our church out of scrap lumber. Found a piece of douglas fir from an old bed about 40 years old, cut it for a lap joint. Glued two faces, edge not end grain, Titebond II and clamped for an hour. After unclamping the parts practically fell apart. Tried it again...

    Everyone knows endgrain glue joints are a no-no when it comes to most woodworking. I'm a very new turner wondering about laminated spindle blanks. I often see turning projects that were clearly turned from laminated blanks with endgrain glue joints. So what gives? Do endgrain glue joints...

    Hey all, I just bought a new cyclone Dust Collector for my shop. I went with the 1.5hp General cyclone. Got a great deal on it to boot. A few points I have from assembly: -Great quality! Very heavy and thick gauge metal. Also, General has several pieces that come right out of the box...
