    I have a simple question I think. When finishing a fretwork clock, can I glue the pieces together after dipping in the finish. Or do I glue first?

    glue first -- most finishes won't adhere to glue.

      If you use lacquer, it does a good job of disguising CA glue that seeps out of a joint...

        Bob,
        That's a new one on me. Never tried discuising CA glue before.

          Does this apply to things dunked in BLO/mineral spirits, or just to gloss finishes?

              Ian -Bob to be honest I really don't rember- I have used BLO a couple of times but didn't find it to my likeing so I went back to poly . I do know I can't get squit to adhere to anything I have any type of finish on - that is with all glues not just one. I have to glue first or sand a spot or two on the piece that I need joined . glue won't adhere to most paints or stains either.I have mentioned before that I have discovered the most wonderful way to bring out the grain and put a undistructable finish on my projects. I use clear concrete sealer. It woks beautifully and really makes the grain jump out .just be sure and use in a well ventalated area.

                  Lantern1, I made this clock a few years ago, I finished the wood first then used "Aleene's" Tacky glue, the one in the brown container. I have had no problems with it coming apart. I finished it with 4 coats of Formby's satin tung oil.

                        Just a thought, how about using some striping tape where the joints are, and then finishing the piece. Then remove the striping tape and glue up the joint. If squeeze out is an issue, tape the inside and outside corners of a joint with painters tape before gluing so the squeeze out lands on the tape. David Marks of DIY woodworks always tapes first then glues second.
