I've used hide glue before to make some small boxes with no stress on the joints when finished. This project there may be some stress on them and I don't want them coming apart.

The reason I used it before is the long open time so I can get all the sides and joints adjusted.

Is this a good choice or should I use the normal Titebond?

Titebond III has a little longer open time. I think Titebond also makes an extend time glue but not certain about that.

I saw Titebond II extended at Woodcraft the other day

I agree with Lew. I use TB III for all my boxes and never have a problem with open time. However, I recommend that you do a dry fit, including setting clamps, before applying glue. Make any necessary corrections, then glue and clamp. I made a glue-up jig that holds 2 sides at 90 degrees while the other 2 sides mate up. Makers the whole process much easier to control.

I've done a couple of dry fits and everything looks ok.

I have a couple of 90 degree clamps I'll dig out to help me along and I do have a fresh bottle of TBIII I'll use.

Like all have said before, I'll post pictures when it's done.

Thanks for the in-put.

I use Titebond II extened for everything, never had a failure, and if you break a joint it takes wood with it.

I use Titebond II panel glue for veneering,(the brown colored). it has good open time.

I use Elmer's, I'm partial to the cow. Been using it for many years.

Good ole Borden's  Elmers, that was the standard glue for commercial carper work for many,many years, until they were bumped by Franklins TB.

Ever ponder if the milk & the glue came out of the same vat?;)

I find titebond 111 works well when making glue-ups on bandsaw boxes. I have used regular titebond 11 but found that I really have to move  to complete the glue-up.

I've used hide but it is a PITA

I can still remember my dad using hide glue and always having to warm it up before use; and it stunk!. :blink:  (or, to borrow a phrase from The Critic - IT STINKS!")

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
