Glue up Techniques Needed7/27
Iím trying to glue up a return trim on a table top and cant think of a good way to clamp for a nice, snug fit at the joint. Anybody know the trick to this? Many thanks in advance...
Not overly difficult? Spline, dowels, biscuits, domino, alternating clamps?
If the cuts are straight and the dry fit is good, you can use clear packing tape and glue it up as a miter fold then use more tape for the clamping pressure.
Another option would be to first use dominos or biscuits to register the cap in place and then use tape or clamps.
Peck Tool miter clamps.
Biscuits for alignment and stability. Then pipe clamps on the long run and squeeze clamps on the short run.
Packing tape and biscuits works if the joints are really good.
Glue size would help
