waves, and say, Hi All,
<snip> I love natural wood <snip>
so is the dovetail going to simply snap off when I put a heavy music
book on it?
I guess the second question would be fitting it together with glue in
the joint without it binding or cracking. I figure epoxy will give me
the time to slide everything together (27" long), but I'm looking for
any advice as I only want to do it once :)
Yeah, unnatural wood gives me the creeps.
How 'heavy' do you consider a 'heavy' music book? Me, I'd glue 2-3
braces under if I was worried about it holding. But that's me. If
you're worried, make a prototype, with cheap wood, and check how it does
before you do it for real.
Just how long do you think it takes for glue to set anyway? I'd
use Titebond II, I use it for about everything.
I do things I don't know how to do, so that I might learn how to do
