Favorite Glue for Complex Glue-ups


I’m building the fence system from Fine Woodworking #231.

The glue-up is complicated. The assembly has to be true with no twist and the working face has to be square to the bottom. Modern woodworking glues just don’t give me enough open time before they tack up and refuse to allow any adjustments. In these situations I use liquid hide glue. It is plenty strong and allows for all the adjustment needed.

As always thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment.
