Color of the Week: Caribe
A richly saturated blue with hints of green, Behr Caribe can make any room feel like a tropical destination. We love it incorporated all over the room, or used as an accent with bright white to make it pop (and how great are those ombre stairs?).
I glued up the mahogany top using Old Brown Glue, which has become indispensable in my shop. If you’ve never used hide glue in your work before you should give Old Brown Glue a try. It is modified with urea so you don’t have to cook it like traditional hide glue, you just warm up the bottle with hot water from the tap and it’s ready to go. Unlike other glues it does not interfere with your finish, is reversible with heat & water (and rinses off your hands and clothes with just cold water), has an open time of 30 minutes (incredibly valuable with long glue ups, especially large dovetailed projects), is non toxic & organic, and does not discolor the wood. It has an especially strong hold with mahogany as well.
Interesting, never heard of it.
