I am doing some restorations. I have read a few articles lately that seem to suggest there being a special place in hell reserved for people who use modern glues on antique furniture. Some even went on to suggest that since any furniture you make will someday be antique then that place in hell might be reserved for anyone who uses modern glues on any furniture project.
That being said, I am our general 80/20 wood worker leaving somewhere way between the Normite and the Neanderthal. The thoughts of a gluepot are so foreign to me that it is simply a tool I have never used nor thought to use before.
Deciding to give it a try, I am faced with many options and I am not sure why I really would want to use the hide glues (benefit-wise—other than avoiding hell :) ) Or exactly how to use them. In addition to that, there seems to be a few choices out there, so now I have to decide which one to use for which kind of application.
