Tite Bond Question

Recommended Posts

Hi, I glued up a body blank of mahogany back and a black limba top. When i cut out the body shape i was fidling with a small offcut and breaking it up in my fingers and it split apart at the glue join. So I tested another offcut, and it is fairly solid but but if forced apart with a chisell it does pull off some bits of either wood here and there but mostly follows the glue join (about 60% of the time). I aint to worried about the body falling to bits but I am wondering if my glueing technique is dodgy cause previous woodworking errors when I have had to split apart a PVA woodglue join has resulted in splintering the wood to bits, no nice split at the join.

Might I be clamping the wood too tight?

Should the glue be left on the wood for a few minutes before clamping?
