Regarding how well hide glue works, I have hide glue residue on my work bench which has been there  since about the 1920's.    It ain't coming off unless I chisel it and I have no plans to do so.  This bench belonged to my grandfather who was a life long cabinet maker and the bench has stayed in the family.   He used hide glue for many many years.  But, he switched to carpenters glue, unless he was doing restorations of  antiques that originally were built with hide glue.    He taught me a lot and swore that the carpenters glue was as good or better and soooooo much easier.
