アンティーク家具レストアに使う糊について

Bonjour

私は通常レストアには魚の糊を使用しますが、時には違う種類のものを使います。

その糊は動物の腱や骨がベースになっており、魚の糊よりも強い接着力があり、温めてリキッド状にしてから使います。

I mainly use the fish glue, but sometime I also use the hot hide glue, 

which is very strong,

アンティーク家具レストアの膠

パネルを真っ直ぐ

Bonjour a tous et a toutes

Last year I wrote a short post about how to flatten a « thin » piece of wood

here

http://www.blog.laurentcluet.com/?p=529

Now today I will show how to flatten a panel.

The problem is this:

アンティークレディビューローレストア

 

 

and this is the left side of this (in red circle):

 

ルイ15世ビューロートップ

As usual, before doing anything, you have to think twice or even thrice, what could be the best solution.

Panel are usually assemble to edge grain , and most probably with  live sawn boards as the face grain side curved.

OK, so one solution would be simply insert glue between the curved part of the panel and the side and put a clamp . But by pushing by hand you can see there is quit some pressure, so this would not work or at least not last.

So the second solution would be decrease the tensions in that board by making some grooves in that opposite side of the panel, the one which is on the opposite side of the veneer.

With less tensions in the board and a good gluing, this shall be fine

So first you have to remove the top and background panel,

and then remove the panel you want to work on:

Once again, you know that this is hide glue, so you can soften it either with water or either with heat,  to be honest I worked  little bit with force too.

Once I opened this box, I notice that the solution I choose , had already been used,

as you can see on the photo below, some grooves are already there.

Which means despite the grooves, the wood still curves, so you have to use a more radical solution:

First, if possible increase the depth of the grooves and the number too.

Then little by little, flatten the boar, easy easy, be careful to no rip the veneer on opposite side,

once you reach your goal, maintain the fully flat position to get free hands,

as below I hold it with clamps.

Then start to dig the space to place the piece of wood perpendicularly to the face grain of the panel. I used chisel and mallet.

To be honest I took this piece of satiné cause it was approximately the size I needed and I did not need to do any cutting.

Like this you will assure flatness to the panel

Now before you place your piece of wood, think about the drawer that should slide and need a

passage, so decrease a bit the thickness of the piece where the drawer is supposed to slide

Now it seems to fit properly

As usual,  I used the fish glue.

Let it dry

and:

Now it is not done yet,

you have to make a proper gluing,

and remove all the old glue to have a good grip power once glued again,

I used the same technique as usual, described here:

Once wood is clean and dry

you can go for the final step
