...this is how fix-it projects are engineered:
I used wood glue to glue the red top back on the toy milk bottle, and to fix the picture frame. I've never used wood glue before, and I expected it to be the same consistency as hot glue. It's not. It's more like water, so don't squeeze the bottle with all your might.
Since wood glue is not like hot glue (or super glue, for that matter), the parts I glued together did not automatically stick. Hence the spice bottles helping weigh down the objects, and the chip clip instead of a clamp. Who says English majors can't be engineers too?!
