Gluing hardwood edging to
plywood has never been one of my favorite tasks. Its always tricky to keep
the edging from slipping while tightening down the clamps. So to help hold the
edging in place, I made some clamping blocks.
These blocks have a shallow, wide groove on one side that's sized to just fit
over the edging and plywood, see drawing. This holds the edging flush with the
plywood. To prevent the blocks from getting glued to the workpiece, I apply wax
to the surface of the blocks before using them.
