Mike’s Mindful Minute Quick Tip #10

vlcsnap-00003When you glue two pieces together it has tendency to slip and slide while clamping it. This quick tip helps to prevent that from happening.

vlcsnap-00004Ordinary table salt.

vlcsnap-00005Spread just a little salt within the glue joint. Put the pieces together and clamp it down. This reduces the slip and slide action dramatically. I first tried this and I was shocked on how well it worked. The glue joint is not a tight as one without salt, but on most project this will be fine. If you are turning the project I would stay with the normal glue practice.
