It takes more than luck to end up with great-looking solid
wood panels. With so many places to go wrong in the glue-up process,
it's important to have a proven plan in place before you squeeze
out that first bead of glue.
In this exclusive technique article from ShopNotes magazine,
we'll take you step by step through the entire process. You'll
learn how to avoid most glue-up problems simply by selecting the
right boards before you begin the project. Then it's on to squaring
the edges, adding
splines and biscuits, and positioning the clamps.
We've also included some great troubleshooting tips that will
help you be sure everything is flat and square before the final
glue-up. This is a perfect companion article to our Blanket Chest
plan, also available at PlansNOW.
