Much more than a reference guide about glues, this book is a full educational experience on the subject of woodworking glues and gluing techniques. You learn so much that, after reading "The Glue Book," you will mark your woodworking knowledge as "the era before Tandy" and "the era after Tandy." No other book on woodworking glue comes close to the level of detail and knowledge Tandy achieves here on this subject, a subject that is so vital to all successful woodworking.On the surface, this may appear to be a technical book. When I first began reading it, I thought I would just gather some information about different glues. Certainly, there is a lot of technical information in this book, but within a few pages I realized that it was providing me with much more than that. After reading this book, you will no longer be confused by glue. Glue is the heart of all fine woodworking -- it is literally what makes your projects last. You will understand this subject fully, and you know why there are so many different glues on the market.Even though it is a short book (only about 130 pages of actual text) the author covers a vast amount of material. Within this space, Mr. Tandy provides a thorough description and examination of every type of available glue, from its chemistry to its bonding characteristics to its proper uses. Mr. Tandy makes his subject very interesting, constantly offering his insight (and even his opinion in key places) in order to provide you with an honest exploration of the many kinds of woodworking glues and what each one's strengths and weaknesses are. He even touches on the history of each glue, covering how and why it was first developed.
