mistermikev Posted March 1, 2019 Report Share Posted March 1, 2019 so I'm about to do some rosewood binding for the first time. I've got a good feel for bending it, but I'm undecided on what glue to use. as I see it - ca glue works great for plastic but I'm unsure of it's ability to hold wood-to-wood. the advantage of ca is it is easy to work an area, then leave it sit for a while, then work another area. it would likely also be better in the event that the binding gets damaged and needs to be replaced later. I also think it would be better afa glue lines. wood glue likely holds better, but it would seem like it is going to require more stringent pressure and obviously - over a longer drying time. Starting/stopping could be problematic if you accidentally let it dry unseated with glue in the channel (does that make sense?). I could also see wood glue being problematic afa getting it everywhere tho I guess you could have the sm issue with ca... but I'm more comfy with ca. so... what say you? ca glue or wood glue for wood binding?
