I recently came into a bunch of 4/4 rough maple and would like to laminate some of it into thicker stock for legs. I’m planning on either painting or ebonizing them, so I’m not so worried about grain or color match as I am about the glue lines becoming visible over time. (Is this called “cold creep”?) I’ve seen where even T3 develps this and I’d like to avoid it if possible. Can anyone recommend a glue that would minimize this issue?

Thanks.

JP

You might consider hide glue. I don’t have any experience with it in terms of your application (painting) but I know a lot of manufacturers of the years have used it successfully. In terms of using it with any other type of finishes I’ve had very good success.

i’m not really that sure about the glue, but a coat of shellac inbetween the wood and paint might help to keep the glue from moving.
