I keep attempting to make a beer mug and on my second attempt I got it completely turned and finished with beeswax. I then try the water test over night for 10 hrs just to make sure that it would hold. When I checked on it, this morning, I discovered I had created a modern art sculpture. 2 of the joints seemed to have catastrophically failed.
I was using Titebond II as recommended and it looks like the glue joints just completely separated. The glue up had sat for 48 hrs before I started to turn the mug. I then started to turn and left it on the lathe for a day or two and didn’t finish it till about 4 days later. The entire time the mug was still in my basement shop so there shouldn’t have been any temperature shock either. Now here is the question, what went wrong? Should I have used Titebond III instead or did something else possibly happen?
