Remember me? I’m the guy who has never run more than about a mile, and just signed up for his first marathon.
That’s just a metaphor, but … I’ve knocked out a handful of pretty easy ww projects, and am now working on an M&T set of Shaker Night Stands … loaded with things I’ve never done before.
So … today brought my first-ever glue-up for Night Stand #1’s top:
Every hobby/pastime has a million questions for which there is no right answer. I have a feeling I’m about to ask a couple:
1) With TiteBond III, do I really have enough time to put glue on both edges of the joint before assembling them? What I did was to glue and join, then glue and join, then glue and join. It was more difficult, but … I played it safe.
2) The squeeze-out. Leave it (on the premise that I’m going to wind up sanding it down after it’s all dried, anyway) or remove it with a wet cloth as you clamp it up?
Again … if these are the woodworking equivalent of asking about religion … or the bicycle equivalent of asking about chain lube … or … the motorcycle equivalent of asking about motor oil … just tell me … and I’ll flip a coin ;-)
