[WWI] laminating propellors

Yes, I do saturate the whole prop, I always soak wood in CA
because I think it helps to stop splintering. I'm allergic to 
CA, so in a way I'd like to stop doing it if it's unnecessary.
Harry Woodman suggested wood glue, so you're in good company,
Richard Branson too, I'm impressed!

Thanks Neil. Do you saturate the whole prop in CA? I find the layer of
wood glue I use to stick the 2 pieces of ply together is so thin it
doesn't affect the carving one way or the other.
