thin stuff
 
I have no idea what I'm going to do with this... except show it off. Just messing around, trying to prove a point.

Thin stuff. Always a pain in the... with regular clamps anyway. These boards are only about 3/16" thick, glued up in one shot.

I don't know... place mat maybe. :rolleyes: Clip board? :confused:

I didn't really need another pizza peel either. :nuts: But I wanted one to show off (mine's a user).

I'm always reminded of this when I see others (on other forums ;)) fighting with glue-ups like these.

I've posted this picture before... but it deserves to be re-visited, for contrast (found on the internets).

But ... but ... but Craig. YOU HAVE NO CLAMPS!!! Big eek

How is this possible? Wood+glue=clamps is a well-known woodworking equation. To not use clamps during a glue-up is just ... well ... sacrilege.

BIG Big Grin

Nice job. You must have done a really careful job jointing those pieces so that they didn't bow up when you applied the Bowclamps. Impressive.

Show off.

:takebow:

Clamps are sooo 20th century. Actually, I always like to keep one handy... for banging in those shims. Works great! :scool: In fact I like to recommend owning 2. :D

Thanks Peter... but I honestly didn't prepare those boards any differently than I might have otherwise. Sure I was careful, but I would want any snipe or twist removed first anyway. Otherwise it' simply not ready to see glue yet. Dry run is crucial.

Speaking of thin stuff though...

Veneer edge banding. The industry standard of course is hot-melt glue. :(

Probably deserves it's own thread... I've always thought that, if it did nothing else... it deserves a place in the shop for this purpose.

I told Woodcraft that they are going to have to start stocking edge tape that's not pre-glued... Because now, they can.:soapbox:

how/what keeps the squeeze out from gluing it to the clamping table?

Craig waxes his tables.
There was a several page discussion about this a few months back.

Thanks Roger.

That would be here... cutting board thread (probably also deserves it's own thread).
