« Part 595: Decisions, Decisions . . . Part 596 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 597: Who Said Work Has To Feel Like "Work?" »

I spent the day drawing my next project yesterday. Since there was nothing really exciting (yet) about that, I decided to do something a bit different for the blog this morning.

Recently I did a very informal survey to find out which glues people like to use best for different applications. I find that glue is a very necessary tool not only in scroll sawing, but in general woodworking too. In consulting with my creative advisor, Pancakes

he thought that it would be a good idea to do a review on the cool glue dispenser that I have from Lee Valley Tools. (Actually, I think he was ready for his nap and just wanted me to buzz off!)

So I let him be and I posted a review on this glue bottle.

While I know a glue bottle may seem trivial, I was really impressed with this one and it has already saved me loads of time when gluing up small and intricate pieces (not to mention the mess and clean up it saved me!) It is really a cool product and I think no shop should be without one.

The review is posted here:

Dripless Glue Bottle Review

I hope you enjoy it and as always, your thoughts and opinions are appreciated.

As for me, I need to ‘stick’ to drawing today.

Have a wonderful Saturday! :D

So happy to hear Dennis! We had a bit of snow this week, but alas, it was melted two days later and it rained and now it is all gone. :( I am happy to hear my young friend will have a little of her wish come true, anyway! Tomorrow will be a good day for her. You drive carefully too. :)

Hi Sheila,
Just to let you know, my favorite available glue EVOSTIC

is back in circulation…. I bought 3 bottles for my use. I had the experience of forgetting to close it and hardens.

Just in time for my second veneering work…
I hope all the glue factories will not be stucked/dried… somewhere… someday… so that my stocks will always be available.
Have a nice day!

-- Bert
