    Hot melt glue is a good way to do this also. Sometimes hot melt can be used to secure pieces from the sides like a tack welder. It can then be cut with a utility blade or released with denatured...

    I swear by a brand called Intertape 591 double sided flat back paper tape. It has a crepe liner, and it is both strong, and removes cleanly. Amazon sells it and so do other sources.

    You're quite right Derek, this particular thread is about PW and actually holds out a little schizophrenic hope for it.

    For something that will be an heirloom piece, please consider Tom's suggestion. Walnut can and will fade from rich to insipid over time. A dye or pigment stain is a fine idea; my personal preference...

    I've found it counter-intuitive that a soft composite material like MDF can be harder on carbide blades than natural wood. I guess it must be because the slurry of dust and glue they use to make it...

    Fred,
    I've heard it said that the soldiers in a war are simply victims of another type. If you're going to hold a grudge, the real perpetrators are the politicians who instigate the war.

    Shellac, if not on the whole jig, then just on the area where I label it with a sharpie. Otherwise the sharpie bleeds.
