    Dovetail Glue

    What are you using to glue up your dovetails? An extended glue or regular setting type?
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Yellow glue. Titebond 1 or Elmers.

    If I have it, Old Brown Glue is also really nice. It's a liquid hide glue that just needs a little warming to use.

    Unless it's a really big project where you'd need a lot of open time, plain old woodworker's glue works fine for me. The only issue is that it's water based so it can swell the wood, making the dovetails harder to put together if they're tight to begin with.

    Ancora imparo
    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.
