    Titebond Dark glue

    I bought some Titebond Dark glue yesterday to use on a segmented bowl with walnut. It looks like maple syrup. I figured it was Titebond so it would probably work OK. Anybody ever use this stuff?

    One of the biggest challenges of making 25 of anything is being consistent with all of the measurements and finding ways to do glue-ups efficiently. The sides of the blocks all have to be the same size on the top dimension so when the fronts are attached everything matches up. I found out...

    Preferred glue to assemble bed with lots of spindles?

    I'm going to need something with a long open time, as I've got a 98 glue joints to assemble at one time, unless I try to do this up in pieces. I've got a feeling that might be the way I head, but I'll need to make some assembly jigs to do that to keep everything square. This is for a...

    I'm going to embark shortly on building some kitchen cabinets and I was wondering what most of you all do when it comes to Kreg pocket screw joints. Do you follow the "Kreg way" and not use glue at all or do you use glue?

    Old glue?

    This weekend I did a little (very little) house cleaning in the shop and threw away some partly used bottles of glue (Titebond II amd III) because they were at least a year old.

    Hot Glue question

    I want to use hot glue to fasten templates to work pieces. I want to be able to easily remove the templates without ruining the work piece with glue residue. Is there any such glue stick? What is it and where can I get it. Thanks James
