....in duck weather sux!

I can't get anything done for waiting on the freakin' glue to dry!

With all the rain , the humidity is terrible, the wood ( neck blanks ) feel like they have been soaking in a creek.

 

ARGH!

I use a dehumidifier in my shop.  I've got to dump the water a couple times each day.
If possible, bring the necks into your house and let them dry out in an air conditioned environment.  I've had to do this in the dead of summer with headstock veneers.
I work in the basement (dry) with a dehumidifier set on 50.  It drains into my A/C condensate pump so I never have to empty the bucket.  :)
What u need is dehumidafire.pardon the spelling

I have switched from carpenters glue to fast dry wood epoxy for building home made guitars and then use the would glue all the way around the inside when done with the band saw work. The glue on the inside of the guitar never shows and the expoxy is stronger that wood glue.......super fast set up meens I am off on another peice and dont have to wait....love it...
