A glue spoon is a traditional method for quickly applying hot hide glue in a thin, controlled line – rather like what you’d get out of a squeeze bottle. Now this isn’t the kind of spoon you’d use for soup; it has a sharp point at the business end that funnels the glue into a stream rather than a glop (the technical term).

The other traditional hide glue application method is a brush – but if you have a big panel glue up and you’ve used hot hide glue before, you know it can be tricky to brush on a sufficient amount before it starts to gel.
