This is one of those projects that was dreamt up in the middle of the night – I am still gluing up sections of reclaimed bowling alley lane (more of that story to follow) and it is always tricky to keep things straight and flat.
The first rev this morning yielded this….some Maple flooring scraps cut up to give an elevated clamping surface with minimal contact to the clamped boards. The tongue on the flooring was a natural…...just add some wax to keep the glue at bay:
Then it occurred to me that having some clamps at the ready would help shave some presious seconds off the glue up time so added the clamp holders:
To make the clamp holders, just clamped them all together to cut the slot on the TS:
The clamps are just below the height of the tongue:
A couple shots in action:
And a final shot:
Wished I’d done something like this sooner – they work pretty good…......will post some of the results of this soon…...
Thanks for looking.
