I use white glue for gluing my projects. I prepare for the gluing
operation (i.e. get everything ready before I begin) and I
apply the glue quickly. But by the time I start assembling
and clamping, the pieces don't want to fit together because
the glue is half-dry.
I recall reading that white glue is slow-drying. Is there any
good glue that is slower-drying than white glue?
White glue is actually one of the faster-drying glues.
Liquid hide glue is slower setting, perhaps an hour of working time.
It's available from Woodcraft and many hardware and lumberyards.
For even slower setting, you can use plastic resin glue. Dap makes
one variety. It comes in powder form. you mix with water. Can have
up to several hours of working time. It has to be clamped and left at
least 12-24 hours to set. Many of these glues have a dark glue line
that can be objectionable on light woods, however.
