« Part 3: Making the stringing Part 4 of String inlaid box series Part 5: Bent stringing »

Right from the on set of this project, I had the intention of using hide glue as my adhesive. (Old Brown Glue is quickly becoming my favorite glue) In my last post, simply because I was short time, I glued in two pieces of stringing with Titebond 3, took my pictures and set everything aside. Since I had a little bit of free time today, I was able to do a few things with this box.

So I grabbed my Old Brown from the fridge, put a pot of water on the stove….

But because I knew I was only going to use a tiny amount, I only heated up the bottle until it just started to warm up, then I poured a small amount into a smaller mixing cup, and put the bottle back into the fridge, and just heated up the small amount in the mixing cup.

Once I had all my stringing test fitted, I used a really thin piece of wood and smeared glue into the groove,

And then I inserted the stringing, and used the butt of a chisel to tap it into place.

Now to just wait for the glue to cure, and then I can scrape it flush. Next up, I need to get some stringing bent and installed, and then I can cut the vertical grooves and radii.

Glad to see you using Hide Glue. A veneer hammer would be a big help when you are setting your stringing in place. I like this blog!

OBG is great stuff Jeremy.
Have you tried hot hide glue?
All the same advantages plus no clamp rubbed joints and hammer veneering.
Nice work on the stringing.

Hey Paul, no I have not tried hot hide yet….. yet. To this point, I have not done any large scale veneer work, so I have not really seen the need. But… my next few personal projects will require it, so it is on my list of things to get set up in the near future.

Thanks to anyone that shows hide glue, liquid or hot, is easy to use.
