I appreciate your info on even staining. I am wondering when you mix the titebond hide glue with water, do you do so warm, or at room temperature? Also do you still like that mixture for blotch control, or have you found something you like more. Thanks!

@Kresso

I mixed the titebond hide glue as well as all the others I have tried with room temperature water, and have now switched to room temperater distilled water per a recommendation of anther Lumberjock. Reason for this is that it removes any contamination on my part with stray chemicals and metals wich may or may not react with the wood or topcoats.

I now use the Gorilla White Wood glue mix only leaving out the General stain additive (cost for results not worth it), as I always have white glue on hand, works well, can be mixed fresh each time it is used, and is cheaper than most anything that is available commercially.

Updated 3/1/15 as links were changed when Popular Woodworking bought out American WoodWorker…. I have added all the links in the orig article and they are current.

I also added a link to an article “Tips for Gluing Miters” above as I found it interesting.

Have your say...
