So, you have two half ovals that you have to glue to each other.
At a 90 Degree angle.
The Joint consists of two dadoes – each has to have pressure applied in opposite directions for proper adhesion.
It’s also a curved surface, so clamping won’t be easy…...............
How in the world can this be done? I really didn’t know until I started messing around with a bunch of clamps and a ton of trial and error – mostly error. ;-)
After a bunch of tries, here’s what I came up with:
Okay, let me try to explain the method of my madness:
The Curved pieces are used to apply even pressure and not damage the pieces.
The Two spring clamps as well as the center vertical bar clamp hold the pieces against the fence and table at a 90 degree angle.
The cauls apply even pressure and the rest of the bar clamps put pressure on the cauls.
Got it? Good! Now, someone explain it to me.
AND, in case anyone is worrying, I DID apply clear tape to the table top to keep the glue off.
Anyone care to guess what this is going to be? Hint: They come as a set of two, and they aren’t bookends. ;-)
