A link.

GluBot Family - FastCap

They are so popular anymore any woodworking store normally has them. 

Great for some applications, but for others the the original bottle works just as well and a lot cheaper!

I use them as well.  if you have some 16 oz bottles, you can contact tite bond and they will send you some new caps, even in the proper color.  At least they have done it twice for me.  send me about 10 each time.

Well, I looked them up. Pretty cool I think. We don't have woodworking shop suppliers around here, too rural. But I will keep an eye open. I could get them online, and will if I buy something I need from a supplier that has them. I'll check the one local place that might carry them. Probably the titebond bottles work just fine, but I just thought I would give something different a try. I have been saving my bottle since you pointed that out Doc, next purchase is a gallon, which I should have done a while ago, but I'm not that smart. ;D

I also have a rubber glue roller I like especially for spreading glue on the edges of glue ups, Like Bills Cherry may end up being.   :(  

Off site image removed by admin

got this on amazon.  about a 2-inch-wide roller with a pattern that makes the glue even across the length of the edge.

lol @doc henderson I might have to glue 4 boards together to have a 1x6.

I always have a gallon jug of TB and a 16 oz bottle for daily use.  Every so often I buy a new bottle just to have  a new cap.  I did that just a few weeks ago.  I always make sure to leave my gallon jug high up on a shelf in the shop in case the heat gets turned off, my glue won't freeze.

I've been using this roller for years.  Its a 4" Rollrite Brayer made in the USA.  Available in about any art store such as Hobby Lobby.  The beauty of the roller is you can get a nice even coat which insures good coverage, less squeeze out, fast spread, and I use less glue.  Mostly use it on veneer work, cutting boards, and thick table top glue ups. It also cleans up easily even when I forget to do it until the next day. ???

Although I do use the Glu-Bots I'm also cheap and use 99 cent ketchup bottles from Walmart at times. :D

you know, you could be making MDF!  be glad for what you got! :D :D :D
and yes, if you just leave the glue on it, it all peels off the next day.  I have had mine for years.

Thanks for the pictures of the the urn, @Larry I'm interested in turning segmented pieces, which I've never tried, and those few simple pictures showed me how better than most. When it warms up some in the shop, and I can move some of the extra junk in there out to the barn I'll have to give it a shot. Like OGH I'm interested on the interior turn as well. I've seen videos of it but I still struggle to understand how to get in there well. I'm also a pretty unexperienced turner, with a kind of garbagey HF lathe, but I can't afford a good one yet.

Turning the inside is easy......if you do it in two pieces and glue it back together.  I have done it the hard way but I have to set up my big old heavy steady rest.

Pictures should explain the process.




















Once I have it glued together I turn the outside a little more to refine the shape and clean it up.  Wall thickness is normally 1/4" to 3/8" but its not critical like with a green hollow form.

I have one more ring to make for the top.  This ring will have hand chased threads for the plug.  Chasing threads is an art and I don't do it much so I sometimes mess up.  If I screw up the threads on a ring its no big deal but if I screw up threads on a complete urn it becomes a problem.

After the top is done it will go to the cnc laser guy.

Don't knock your HF lathe, especially for segmented work.  One of the best segmenters I know uses a HF lathe.

Nice segmented vase.  I do a bit of turning myself.  I have a Oneway 4236 which I just recently bought from an old fella who downsized.  I glue up half rings, and knock the inside corners off on the bandsaw, and then glue up the ring.  Its not so grabby when you turn the inside and much less stressful to work with.

God bless experience! I'd have never (or at least for a long time!) thought to make it in two halves. I can turn the inside of a bowl reasonably well, I can't (I don't think) so much with a curvy-innerd vase. Good stuff! 

I need to do some more work on the HF lathe, I had some trouble getting the centers to be centered across the whole thing but I just learned some stuff that may help.

The Oneway 2436 in my opinion is the best lathe out there, especially for turning big stuff on the outboard side.  I've demoed on one several times at a craft school.  Some day I'll have one.

Tonight I made the top ring for the urn.  I hand chased the female threads for the lid that will screw on.  I made the tool I used to chase the threads but you can buy them.  I soak the threads in ca glue and they become pretty hard.

Is thread making just putting the tool in there and dragging back? I've never seen that done.

Holy crap, I've never seen that Oneway, it's a beast!

Took the urn to my friend/neighbor/craftsman a few days ago and picked it up this morning.  He lasered some writing in the maple trim ring and put the Dentistry symbol on the top lid.  I think excellent work and a more than fair price of $30....I also tipped.




My Dentist friend was born to a dirt poor single mom in Arkansas.  Got trained by the Army to be a Dentist during WW-ll.  War ended about the time he graduated from school.  Had a distinguished career as a Dentist.  Made me feel good to be chosen to make a urn for his ashes.  Fitting that the wood for the urn came from close to where he was born.
