    There is no one adhesive that is good for all uses. My go-to glue is Titebond III but there are times when I feel it may not be good enough. I have come to use Gorilla Glue. Lets face it, the name alone can attract us to us it, their duct tape and a few of their other products. I have to say...

    Please comment on my recent experiment with gluing tubes into wood blanks. In the future, I plan to use Titebond Polyurethane for this purpose, but since I'd had mixed results using Epoxy and 'Super Glue' I decided to experiment with Titebond II. My blank of Marblewood was cut perpendicular to...

    I am v carving names and engraving designs into cutting boards as gifts. I would really like to fill the cuts with a food safe filler that will hold up to hand washing and not poison my family. (Most of them anyway =) ) I have used a colored wood filler for other projects but always sealed it...

    Hi cutting board club members!!! I have a question for Titebond II and III, which are known for waterproof and food safety. When I read their label on the bottle, it says "Safe on non-direct food contact". I don't get concrete idea what is non-direct contact, and are the glues lines on the...

    View on YouTube I posted this as a blog post, but someone suggested that I also post it in the forum. I didn't know we could do that! We can, right? :) I really think this is some good information. Of course, I could be biased that way. I hope you like it. I started wondering about wood...

    I just opened up my cauls, after veneering Lacewood to a Spanish Cedar substrate-and the Titebond Glue I've always used totally bled through the veneer. Do you have any suggestions for: 1) Rescuing these pieces so that they can be finished nicely? 2) Suggestions to prevent it on the next two...

I was...

    If you have Festool tools, arent they the greatest and best engineered things in the world? Im getting better with my Domino machine, but i have a question. Lets say we are joining a 6 inch wide end to a 6 inch wide frame, such as making a shelf. I would say to use 3 or 4 dominos. Heres my...

    I'm making some shelve sides that have this sort of pattern/decorative face to them (miter corners)... I'm faking the miter frame by cutting iron-on veneer edge banding and laying it up on the same substrate as the larger face sheet of paperback veneer. I'm using titebond veneer glue and the...

    Do the solids in Titebond 1 Extend settle out like Titebond 2 Extend? I had a 16 oz. bottle of Titebond 2 Extend. It took me a few months to use it up. When I could get no more liquid out of the bottle it was still pretty heavy so I cut it open. I found about 2 inches of dense paste had...

    Progess is very slow...cutting the new plywood, the angles and the splines This is actually the second in the series but I didn't understand how the blog system works. The first in the series is a separate blog entitled TV stand. I will eventually put this on my website in more detail but...
  12. 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?

    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...

    Hi All, I am in the process of making a new drill press table. I have a core of 3/4" baltic birch and plan on putting 1/4" tempered (smooth both sides) hardboard top and bottom. I was thinking contact cement but am wondering if there are better options? Thanks Randy

    I bought 3 rolling display cabinets a few weeks ago at the thrift store. (I paid $3.98 each for them and just really wanted the casters and hardware, but decided to see what I could use them for as is.) I stacked one on top of the other due to lack of floor space and pushed them in and out of...
