Banding Together Makes Glue-Up Easier
Applying thin strips of solid-wood edging usually requires a clamp every few inches to distribute the pressure evenly. Fortunately, there's a simple way to attach these strips of edging without having to use all the clamps in your shop. The idea is to use the actual edged pieces as clamping blocks.
To do this, glue the edging onto two similar size pieces, as shown in the Edging Detail. Then clamp the two pieces edge to edge to distribute the clamping pressure, as shown at right. A piece of waxed paper between the two pieces will keep them from sticking together.
