I am making a box jointed organizer. I didn't think it mattered how I
assembled the sides (as long as I had the grove for the bottom on the
bottom) so I didn't pay any attention to how I glued it up with TBII.
An hour later I found out it was possible, and I had done it wrong.
With a little difficulty I pulled it apart and reglued it. I didn't remove
any of the old glue because I figured to be meaningful I would have to
remove some wood, and then it wouldn't fit.
Has anyone tried regluing like this? Is it going to be okay, or should I
pull it apart again and use polyurethane? Thanks. (If it has to be
reglued, then I ought to be able to pull it apart easily enough, right?!)
I'd just reglue it. Box joints have so much surface area, it'll
probably be fine.
I know how you feel. This week I needed a 1 5/8' wide red oak board.
I ripped a board (my last one in stock) too narrow, so I glued it back
together. I proceeded to rip the board too narrow again, so I glued
it back together, again. Then, I did it AGAIN, for a third time!
Three times was the charm though. <G>

I don't drink and saw, rout, joint, or drill.
However! I will enjoy a cold one while sanding, vacuuming, sweeping,
putting away, etc... <G>
The thought of ripping after even one drink gives me the chills...

Pull apart? Probably not. I did a test finger joint with really quick,
half assed fingers and not enough glue, no clamps. Later, I tried to
reclaim those scraps for some other purpose, and I broke one of the ~1"x2"
pieces of walnut before the joint gave up.
I'd say you're fine.
