Default Re: Glueing up.

This is really helpful, Derek. I've only glued up one dovetailed cabinet, but I didn't do it in stages as you did. How long did you wait after gluing the sides to the bottom before putting the top on? I'm just thinking about rearranging all those clamps, and the possibility of things shifting.

It looks like you used a lot of glue, but didn't get a whole lot of squeeze out. You only needed to clean up near the corners by the look of it.

I'm also impressed that you stopped to take pictures. Talk about cool under pressure!!! I'm always in a panic during glue ups. Perhaps I need more practice...
I don't have as many Festools as Fred. Or Marcou's, or Brese's, or Lie-Nielsen's, or Lee Valley's, or Blue Spruce's, or Harold and Saxon's, or...
