I'm not qualified but I will say using hide glue wasn't nearly as hard as people made it sound. You just have to be prepared. Know exactly what your about to do, do a few dry runs and have everything sorted and laid out so it is quick to hand. If you stumble along the was it is fixable. If you take to long you can easily fix it also. If what you did is questionable pull it apart clean it up and do it again.
