“In your recent e-mail version, there was a discussion about choosing between carpenter’s glue and epoxy. I was very surprised there was no mention of the real difference. Epoxy glue does not require evaporation to harden, while regular glue needs evaporation. It is not uncommon when taking apart old dowel joints to find the glue at the bottom still slightly soft. When the gluing situation has limited evaporation, then epoxy is the glue of choice.

Enjoy your magazine very much and in particular the e-mail version.” – J. Courtland Robinson, MD
