Re: [BKARTS] Adhesive for bookcloth on wood box

storz@xxxxxxx 01/25/06 6:24 PM >>>
A friend has asked for advice on recovering a small wood box. He wants to use something reversible and yet strong. I talked him out of using YES glue. He didn't think paste is strong enough, and PVA is not really reversible.

Maybe I missed something? --- Have you thought about using hot glue, or gelatin? It certainly is reversible, and has less water than paste with fewer possible associated problems.
