Gluing fabric to wood
 
I want to line some walnut boxes with green or red felt. What's the best way
to do this? Would regular titebond glue work ok or should I look for
something else?

Thanx,

Vic Baron

Go to the local craft store get some Aleene's Original Tacky Glue. A really
horrible glue for the shop but a great glue for fabric to wood gluing. Real
good open time, easy to make corrections in the placement of the cloth. easy
cleanup and when setup holds the fabric in place forever. and is more
flexible then normal wood glue for fabric. Web site is
www.duncancrafts.com according to the bottle.

white glue. thin it down a little and apply it with a brush. let the
first coat dry. lay the felt down in the second coat and press it into
place with the back of a spoon or similar.

Take a thin piece of carboard slightly smaller than the inside of the box..
Apply glue to the top of the cardboard and on the edges of the underside of
the cardboard. After the glue dries just pop it in . This allows for easy
removal should you have to refinish or repair the box.

Whatever you use, make a test first. Most glues will stick the felt
down, but some may have problems with visible soak-through.

I use a contact adhesive (Evostick 528), applied to the box only and
allowed to go tacky. For high-quality work, or most leather, I might
use rabbit skin glue, used hot.

Well, last year I made a few jewelry boxes for family members and lined the
drawers with felt. I went to HD and got some Elmer's in a spray can. No
bleed through and it's still stuck to the drawers. Only bad thing, it sets
up pretty quick.

I saw some felt at Walmart with a sticky backing. I saw only white. Check it
out and try the craft stores too, they might have lots more colors.
Good luck.

Any crafts store will have felt with a peel and stick backing, and it is by
far the best choice.
You can cut and test fit with the backing in place.
But two things need to be pointed out:
The felt has a habit of stretching if handled roughly, which would mean
trimming after the felt is in place,
The stick part is just that.....very sticky. It hold pretty good with casual
contact, so be very careful with placement after peeling.
I have seen it in over ten different colors.

Looks like there are others that will work as well, no big surprise. I have
used Aleene's for several years now and have had no problems, the others I
have no experience with.
