Making Liquid (cold) Hide Glue

42 days ago by stefang | 26 comments »

While planning my first veneer marquetry experience I was a little worried about using hot hide glue to fasten the marquetry to the box sides of my project. I worried that the glue would cool too quickly before I could get it into the veneer press. I had read an article here about making your own liquid hide glue that could be used at room temperature and which had a very long open time. Realizing that this would eliminate any risk of the glue setting up too quickly before pressing I decid...

Doweled Chair Repair #2: First Steps of Regluing

154 days ago by DrDirt | 7 comments »

Well – as one can expect, there are always some unanticipated setbacks. Started off this morning, to glue the back together. First I carved grooves in the dowels, so that there would not be a problem with the dowel holes filling with glue and the back not coming together. I double checked the depths, and felt the 2 inch dowels I had cut might be long, so I trimmed them down by 1/8th inch. What I found… is I didn’t go far enough!!, so with hot glue spread, and...

Hide Glue #6: Save Your Hide (Glue)

172 days ago by Patricelejeune | 7 comments »

Here is the new installment on our videos on Hide Glue. Many have asked us how they could save there Hot Hide Glue when they are not using it. Not like Old Brown Glue, Hot Hide Glue will rot in days if not cooked or frozen. It is not advised to freeze the all glue pot, so we usually dry the glue if we have to much In this case, we had taught classes for 2 weeks at the American School of French Marquetry and had 2 glue pots on the hot plates. The class finished, we were back at the works...

DID SHIPWRIGHT TELL US THE TRUTH ABOUT HIDE GLUE?

490 days ago by stefang | 39 comments »

I read Shipwright’s 3 part blog on hot hide glue here for beginners. Here is a paraphrased summary of what he said: WILD CLAIM NO.1Hide glue is easy to use and not messy WILD CLAIM NO.2Hide glue bonds are stronger that the wood. Ok, there was a lot more info than this in Shipwright’s blog, but if you want to, after reading this blog, then go ahead and read it. Based on Shipwright’s advice, I bought dry hide glue granules, 4 kilos to be exact. I reckoned that based ...

Simple Veneered box #3: Part 3 - the top, bottom and outside

510 days ago by lumberjoe | 8 comments »

I assembled the box walls using hot hide glue rub joints. since I had a seamless fit, no clamps were used. I was going to shoot some brads for additional strength but decided against it. After it sat for a day, I could not pull this box apart as it was. Short of using a spreader or mechanical advantage, these joints were going nowhere. I then measured and cut the MDF for the top and bottom. After cut, I veneered what was to be the inside. One with the walnut I sliced on the bandsaw and one...

Simple Veneered box #1: Simple Hammer Veneered box Part 1 - getting started

513 days ago by lumberjoe | 3 comments »

Hammer veneering is something I played with recently and enjoyed. Unfortunitely I didn’t put any thought into the finished product and it came out like crap. I accomplished my goal of playing around with the tools and technique. I am kind of bored now and don’t want to start any big projects, so I figured I would make myself a little box. I got some sequenced matched bubinga veneer from Woodcraft for about 9.00. I also picked up a quarter sheet of 1/2” MDF from home depot...
