Quick question:

Just finishing a two strip quad - this first one more as an experiment an learning tool than anything else - and I don't have any fancy glue around the house, just epoxy (5 minute and regular) and carpenter's wood glue. Can I get away with the wood glue?

Ken - give 'er a go. If it's the Rona / Revy / Home Depot yellow-white type color - guesses is that its pretty close in composition to Titebond III.

Oh by-the-by - Lee Valley carries Titebond III in 2 sizes. I got the big jug - just in case. Ellice Ave and Empress (west end of the strip mall where SIR was).

darrell,

Thanks, Darrell. She'll be ready to plane down to square by tomorrow..

Then I guess I'd better get components

Do yourself a favor and at least run down to the hardware store for a new bottle of Titebond or one of the PU glues (Gorilla Glue, Ultimate Glue, Titebond PU). The stuff you mention sounds like a fast road to a failure. Considering how cheap glue costs, isn't the time you've invested worth that much?--Larry

Excellent advice. Titebond III is 5 bucks for an 8 oz bottle. Why risk all of your work for 5 bucks?

Thanks for the advice. I actually went out to Lee Valley woodworking supply shop and picked up a bottle of Titebond III yesterday. I had already used regular wood glue on my first PMQ but then, that rod was all for learning anyway. Came out OK, but will be pulling out some better bamboo later this week.

By the way, the blank I built was a PMQ modified from a taper I pulled off RodDNA, specifically the Hayashida 5042 (5041? - I built as a one piece). Your taper, I presume, DHayashida?
