Hello all of you smart lumber jock dudes and dudests,
I have a question about glue. I have been building furniture for over 20 years and in that time I have done some fairly nerve racking glue-ups. I have only used the typical, yellow woodworking glue that has a fairly short “open-time”. Most of my pieces use white oak which is very porus and seems to really suck up the glue and the parts stick together quickly.
Well I guess I am loosing my nerve because I have an up-coming glue up where I am convinced that I will not be able to manage the assembly quickly enough before the glue setting will mess it up. I have many hours invested and the material is white oak again. I have used Gorrilla glue one time before (which seems to have a longer open time) but that experience made me never want to use that product again (it was way to messy and the clean up was really hard).
So does anyone out there have a suggestion for a glue product that is as easy to used as yellow glue (wipe off with a wet rag) but has a longer open time than the standard yellow glue product? I would really appreciate your suggestions on products and where you can get them.
Thanks in advance,
