Woodworking Tips / Tricks / How To Fix A Not So Good Miter Joint
« on: August 06, 2012, 07:45:10 pm »
What you need is Wood Glue, Screwdriver, and 200 grit Sandpaper. Carefully widen joint a bit and on the outside corner of joint rub wood glue into joint and use the round long side of screwdriver to rub the two pieces together for a couple of minutes Then when glue gets tacky... start sanding the outside of miter joint to allow the dust to mix with glue, and wolla you will never see the wide open joint no longer. :o

Woodworking Tips / Tricks / Glue Brush
« on: August 06, 2012, 07:12:17 pm »
As a lot of us know already but some may not know. You can use a silicone basting brush to apply wood glue. Just cut the brush in half so it doesn't soak up to much glue. You can buy these silicone brushes almost anywhere. The great thing about using these brushes is when the glue dries on the brush you can just quickly peel it from the bristles. :o

Excellent tip! I will use this for sure! ::)
