Hide glue

Apr. 19th, 2009 01:45 pm
I need to stop fretting about the possibility of hide glue joints coming undone if they get wet. I soaked a botched edge joint, exposed it to steam, and it still required a tremendous amount of force to undo. I suppose this qualifies as "reversible" in a strict technical sense, but if I hadn't botched it it would have been even worse.

A new hat

I finished the hat I started last Thursday. It's quite comfortable, actually, although I've yet to try using it outside. The material is actually a deep blue, not black, but it's so deep it's not easy to photograph well.
