Remounting the Natural edged Bowl

I have managed to get a video up on YouTube regarding remounting the natural edged bowl, preparatory to finish turning. This one illustrates well the use of a hot glue block.

There have been some questions raised as to the use of hot glue with a glue block.

  • it is the same glue the crafters use. I have used heavy duty but find it no better.

  • make sure the gun is hot

  • the wood surfaces need to be reasonably flat or very slightly concave

  • the surfaces need to be dry

These are just the precautions you would use with any glue block. However, with hot glue there is no real need to clamp and you can turn right away.
