I’m making a lid for a box that measures roughly 30×18x16. The lid is made from 1×4 cedar.
I wanted this to be very flat, so I made a jig to hold the glue up about 2 inches off the table.
See the heavily taped area in the middle? That’s the jig. It allows me to sandwich the lid with boards to clamp it flat.
So the lid sits on a flat surface while giving me a couple inches to slide some clamp under it and it’s also high enough to clamp the lit flat in three places.
Oh, I have to brag on my DC. The planer is hooked up and has planed about 200BF and look at that floor..spotless.
Here is the box. Just waiting on the lid to dry now.
Thanks for looking. Comments welcome.
