Titebond Genuine Hide Glue
A Modern take on the tradition. Titebond Hide Glue is a great alternative to the traditional Hide Glue that we use at the school. It offers the same benefits as traditional hide glue but is ready-to-use out of the bottle. No need to heat up your glue prior to your glue up.
Here's what Tiebond has to say:
"Titebond Liquid Hide Glue is the first hide glue to be offered in a liquid, ready-to-use form. It requires no mixing, heating or stirring. Professional woodworkers use Titebond Liquid Hide for its long assembly time, exceptional strength and unique crackling effect on wood.
Titebond Liquid Hide provides superior creep-resistance, offers excellent sandability and is unaffected by finishes. Its sensitivity to moisture allows for easy disassembly of parts, a critical benefit in antique restoration or the repair of musical instruments."
