Starting Glue Up

 Not much to see but I've started gluing and nailing the sides. The side with the nails has to be cleaned up prior to nailing. The short sides, with the glue over run will be cleaned up once the glue up is completed.

This will go a little slowly because I want to let the glue set on each butt joint before going to the next.

My first thought was to use hot hide glue with the nails but after thinking about the process I decided on liquid hide glue. Liquid hide glue has a much longer open time vs. hot hide glue plus liquid will stay slightly flexible where hot very quickly becomes almost glass like. With the crude joints, the need to adjust as the nails are installed and the expected adjustment to get every thing close to square, the longer open time becomes important.
