I started using Titebond Liquid Hide Glue because of my frequent mistakes.
Decided to undo a joint I wasn’t happy with. Googled…saw suggestion to use hot water. I poured about a half cup on the dovetail joint. Yeah, it came undone but the 7” wood now flares out 1/8” from wood expansion! That is, then 2” of wood near wear I poured is now 7 1/8” wide instead of 7”. Of course the dovetail no longer fits.
I tried oven at 200 degrees for a few hours. And it’s been 2 days. Still flared out. Makes me wonder if I permanently messed up the piece.
Heat gun next time??
