I have written an article on using epoxy. It was saved as the older MSWord format and since I didn’t want to deal with moving all of the pictures here, I made it downloadable from my website. My Back Porch page will get you to it.

I’m right with Autumn, hide glue and epoxy.
In my case I’ve been using epoxies of various kinds for over forty years but I’m quite new to hide glue. That said I’m a complete convert to hide glue and in fact I spent the whole day in the shop today hammering veneer. It’s just so easy and fast.
This one however is about epoxy so I’ll go and read it and may come back for another comment on the article itself.

Pretty good article Dave.
I agree with almost everything and will be happy to add a few tips and tricks that I have learned.
I’ll have to give it some thought and assemble some photos.

Thanks to fellow LJ, this file was converted to a .pdf. I will put it up on my site as well. But does anyone know if that format can be directly pasted into a blog?

The cut and paste didn’t bring the pix, and it said something about requiring external photo hosting, ie, photobucket!! Weird since the projects area doesnt require that. Anyway, not interested in spending hours to do it.
