Handiest Tool in Your Work Shop
Perhaps you have never thought of the special advantages of using LePage's Liquid Glue. It is always ready for immediate use. No weighing, soaking or heating is required. The quality is always the same. It “sets” slowly enough so that you have plenty of time to place the joints together exactly as they should go. Slow setting also allows LePage's to penetrate the wood, increasing the strength cf the joint. LePage’s Liquid Glue is equal in strength to any animal glue. Buy a can for your workshop. It is the easiest, quickest, handiest form of Glue. Insist on LePage’s.

LE PAGE’S GLUE
household furniture, and how to improve your craftsmanship.
“LePage’s Work Shop Book” contains complete directions for making a taboret, footstool, hanging book shelves, book trough, end table with book trough, and a number of simple things which perhaps your boy would like to make. The printed directions for making, step by step, are supplemented by dimension drawings and illustrations made from photographs of the finished pieces of furniture.
LePage’s “Practical Suggestions for the Home Work Shop” will help you come closer to equalling the skill of the trained cabinet-maker. It tells you how to make strong joints with glue, and with glue in its most convenient form—LePage’s Liquid Glue.
These books also show you how to cover up small defects in your craftsmanship. Now and then a tool will slip and an error is made. Or there are holes to be filled where nails or screws
have been countersunk. Or the edges of a joint are not exactly even. A simple new way to repair these defects is with the use of LePage’s Gesso instead of putty. LePage’s Gesso will stick to any surface— wood, metal, glass, etc., and will stand 1000 lbs. breaking strain as explained in the books. It can be sandpapered, planed and painted or stained just like wood. We give you in the small panel below a simple formula for making LePage’s Gesso, but of course we tell you more about it in the books themselves, together with practical information on decorating your finished articles with Gesso.
