    I usually don't try to glue dissimilar woods together because of the mismatched expansion factors. However, I have some dark lyptus that would look really nice contrasted with some white hard maple on a project I'm doing. I want to glue a length 6 inch 1.25 inch wide of hard maple to a matching...

    Hi, Can someone please tell me what type of glue I would buy if I wanted to join wood with glue and screws and I never want it to come apart again without ripping the wood. I'm working with 8-ply maple & African mahogany. Cost is not an object. I don't care if it's hazardous to the skin or...

My original plan was to attach the plywood to the bar and then add the oak to the top by edge gluing the boards together as well as to the plywood. I was going to use biscuits and pipe clams to ensure tight edges and then using wood...

    I am making a table. The finished top will be 48" by 14". I am using some beautiful white oak that I was able to buy. I want the finished width to be 3/4". The raw wood is about 13/16". I have a Delta 6" joiner/planer. The wood that I received was about 7-8 inches wide. I decided to rip the...

    I'm trying my hand at making a rifle stock. I found a piece of 4/4 Bubinga that I want to use. It has good grain and no sap pockets, so it's a good candidate for laminating together to get the 2 1/2" I need. I've never put a lot of research into adhesives before, but this is going to be my...

    I want to make a tabletop with four red oak sections separated by a "plus sign" made of two pieces of maple. I am worried about how to join them for problems caused by expansion and contraction. The oak will have all its gran running horizontally, and one of the maple sections as well, but the...

    I would like some ideas on how to join a different neck on to my very old fiddle. The original neck was not dovetailed into the violin like most violins. The block and the neck were all of one piece of wood. Also The neck has had a grafting done in the past, but the neck is too short and neck...
