I would like to get opinions/advice on cut and glue tempatures.
It is winter here in the north, and right now I cut all my pieces
out in the barn. After all pieces are cut, I bring them into the
warm work area ( about 60 degrees) and let them set for 2 days
before I glue them together. Is this a good idea or am I going to regret it in 4 months? (outside temp is about 30 to 40. I do this due to limited space, and lack of money to heat barn)
Any and all responces are greatly appreciated. thanks
Humidity change is the enemy. Winter is low humidity. Wood will grow after spring. For some things this helps, a snug mortise and tenon now will be damn near rock solid when humidity rises. Ditto chair legs, etc.
I'd acclimatize the wood to the indoors for a couple of weeks, run out to shop to make cuts and then bring it back in for additional work.
