I like to spread a glue on a board surfaces with a chip. Some time ago I did it with a chip I found on a floor or splitting it from scrap of wood. Such chips were of irregular shape and sometimes it took much time to find something appropriate. Now I use simple and fast technique allowing to get several dozens chips of perfect shape in couple of minutes. Here is a short pictorial.

Taking some scrap board 1,5-2 cm of thickness and of any widht:

Cutting length up to about 7 cm:

Clamping about 1 cm of the board in a vise:

Taking some knife:

Riving a chip from the board with the knife. The thickness is slightly less than 1 mm:

Keeping doin so up to the end of board:

The chips have been made:

Enjoy your glueing!
