Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Hi all
    Just wondering what glues other builders use for instrument construction, whether they be:
    traditional animal glues, urea formaldehyde , PVA, epoxys , resorcinol or other.
    Do you have a favourite glue?
    Are different glues used in different parts of the instrument.?
    Do you think glue type effects tone greatly?

    I use urea formaldehyde for all joints except the nut.
    cheers
