Here goes my first of many and I do mean many…..
It seems to be hard for me to get my glue lines to disappear. I sand and sand trying to get them to go away but can’t seem to eliminate them.
The mallet I made, on the top where I put in my splines it looked great at first but then the next day I came to see my dried glue item. They are very faint but can still be seen until I put few coats polyurethane. I noticed some black marks also but this may be from the cheap soft wood I used for a recipe that called for hardwood.
1. To sum up I use probably a thicker coat of glue then needed and soon after I clamp I wipe with a damp cloth?
Using (Elmer’s WoodGlue Max – Interior exterior. Can’t be the brand right?
2. Some put saw dust on dripping glue is this better than trying to wipe away excess before it dries with wet rag?
3. These folks who do the 8 different kinds of wood on one cutting board, box.Or the super crazy good tables with like 100 different glue ups!! that the guy calls (GeoMatriX) There is no secret other than perfectly planed wood or jointed.??
answering a number will be easier on the both of us if possible
Thanks so much everyone who encouraged me to bother everyone with my noob questions. I promise no more for a few days after this….. well maybe
