Popular Woodworking Magazine, February 2017

The February concern of Well-liked Woodworking Journal
(#230) simply mailed to print subscribers and emailed to
digital subscribers.
It’s live in our online store too.
This can be a strong concern
that’s positive to maintain you busy for a while – Invoice Rainford’s
Tage Frid-inspired mid-century workbench is a problem that
will stand (robust – it’s sturdy) as testimony to your
woodworking abilities. And Willard Anderson’s tricked-out
knock-down shaving horse, that includes an vintage tractor seat
and turned Windsor legs, provides you with many hours of enjoyment
constructing, then utilizing, the moveable steed. You may as well begin
making marquetry panels – pictures constructed from
scrollsaw-cut wooden – with award-winning maker Craig
Thibodeau’s primer on this compelling art work approach. And
for those who’re having issues with panel glue-ups, you’ll
respect our spring-joint tutorial – environment friendly and
cost-effective (you don’t must spend your entire paycheck
on clamps), the spring joint is a conventional approach that
simply plain works.

The article I maintain coming again to, although, is Christopher
Schwarz’s “The Finest Glue for Furnishings?” which, punctuation
apart, isn’t truly a query – he’s assured that, in
most circumstances, the reply is liquid cover glue. I, like many,
have my favourite yellow glue, and I’m none too eager to swap
that out for a pricier bottle (particularly one which carries a
whiff of antiquity…I’m fantastic with the precise scent, having
raised hogs for the previous few years). However what Chris touts as
one in every of protein glue’s greatest belongings has me able to attempt some
out: reversibility.

I’m a hopeless perfectionist, however I’m additionally hyper liable to
messing issues up. This unlucky dichotomy plagues nearly
each undertaking or endeavor I undertake, and it’s irritating.
So I by no means say “no” to the opportunity of a do-over, which is
what you get whenever you put moisture and warmth to a hide-glue
joint: An opportunity to place proper what you bought unsuitable. Schwarz
expounds on cover glue’s numerous different benefits and gives
skilled steerage for utilizing the stuff, however for those who’ve ever (in
the creator’s phrases) “put slot A into tab B,” it’s good to know
about this reversible glue.


Read about liquid hide glue and much more in the February
issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine.
