To wrap up my new product coverage of AWFS, I’d like to talk about two new takes on technology that’s been around for years. The first is an instant glue that could be a godsend for production woodworkers and a nice innovation for us home shop craftsmen as well.
An Instant Glue
For Heavy Duty Woodworking
I’ve used cyanoacrylate glue for years in woodturning. It sets fast when attaching bowl blanks to waste blocks. It can fill and strengthen punky bark to ensure a natural-edge bowl actually ends up with the natural edge intact. And for small projects like turned pens, it can even produce a high-sheen final finish.
But I never figured it for joinery of any kind because CA glue is just too brittle. Or rather, I should say, it was.
