Starting with this first clip of 2009, I am starting little video shorts called QUICK TIPS. The first QUICK TIP: Joining Edges. Don’t you just hate when you can’t get two pieces of wood to lay nice and flat next to each other?? Well-elll-elll, I have the QUICK TIP for you!


And… keep those shiney shoes tappin’ til dawn!

When I plane the edges of bookmatched guitar tops/backs to glue together I put them together like you did but put them flat on the bench with two boards near the edge. One to elevate it and the other over the top to clamp them together. I take my largest bed steel plane and put it on the side. A few swipes and I have two right angle edges. If the plane has a side that’s perpendicular to the bed then the edges are very nice.
