    Default Gluing in history

    Chisels and axes go back a ways to the bronze age and stone age respectively but gluing must be among the oldest of woodworking techniques. https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0213473
    Innovations are those useful things that, by dint of chance, manage to survive the stupidity and destructive tendencies inherent in human nature.

    Agreed! That's a concise article, thank you. Conifer resins and beeswax. Here, there might have been some pounded grass fiber added.

    Top quality (>>$50,000) violins are assembled with as many as 4 different hide glues (beef, rabbit, fowl and fish.)
    As adhesives, I'd like to read a little about the development, the invention, of hide glues.
    Think about it. How the Hello would you come up with rendered skins and fish bladders for adhesives??????
    Must have been a very, very long winter in the cave.
