Glue seem suggestions.

I just glued to pieces of rosewood together and in a few spots where the laminate is bent I see a yellow wood glue seem.

I put a hair drier on it for about 60 seconds to loosen it then clamp it down, but it didn't really do my... I was nervous to apply heat longer due to the fact I didn't want the good seem to rise???

Worst comes to worst I can bind it, but I Hope there is a way,

Thanks

laminate?

If you glued 2 thin pieces together and did not use stiff backing boards and clamps to press out most of the glue, you will have what you describe. There is no "cure" I am aware of other than separating the pieces using steam, hot water vinegar, etc. and start over.

A photo of the glue line (seam) will help describe the issue.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I think when you finish it the problem will go away.

This is where it's really bad.... I don't think I like the vaccum bag press... It doesn't let you see where extra pressure is needed... Oh well, you live, you learn.

from here it doesn't look all that bad ...

From a distance, it looks far off, as they used to say.
Actually, Steve is probably correct, but a little epoxy fill may help also if there is an actual gap. The glue line will "show" but not as bad as it is without a finish. JMO.

Is there a solvent that loosens tightbond fairly easily?

Use hide glue. If you don't know about it do some research on line. Hide glue is the first glue man used, I am talking cave man.

I just took my time and made a caul to fit the contour and applied some heat via a heat gun, and eventually I got a nice seem...

I will look into hide glue though, for some reason I thought hide glue was brittle. I am so everything now is trail and error!

Thanks for the input!
