    Thin boards glue-up

    Good day

    Disclaimer
    This idea is not mine, I saw it in a book and just modified it a little bit

    Claimer
    I swear that I took the pictures myself

    The idea might be good for all the "Boxers" here

    This idea will work with thin boards up to 10mm (3/8").
    First I experimented with 8mm (5/16") MDF and then, with 4mm (5/32") solid wood.

    Regards

    Niki, Niki, Niki...... as usual, a great, simple solution to a vexing problem. Now why couldn't you have posted this a couple of days ago, before I glued 5 pieces of 3/8" maple and two strips of walnut together. It would have been sooooo much simpler using your method. After much sanding, it came out ok but using the method you posted would have saved a lot of sanding.

    Thanks, I'll enter this into the memory banks for future use.

    We have got to get this guy published!

    Niki, you could fill 3 books with all the stuff you've come up with and I'd buy every one of 'em. We have GOT to get you a book deal!

    Any publishers out there?

    That's a great and innovative way to do an edge glue. Thanks for posting.

    Jim
    I'm so sorry, I just found it in my files....well, I hope that the next time is will be easier for you.

    No way that I'll sit to write a book....at least, not now that I'm still "young" (a week ago, I "entered into my 64th year on planet earth)

    As I said, it's not my idea, I just modified it a little bit.
