Wow, those are certainly some monster glue-ups- but then again I am only a rookie member of the club and not a “seasoned pro”. :)

Thanks for posting this, Larry. I have a better understanding on how to create the patterns after seeing these. I don’t think that I am quite ready for something as ambitious as these- yet. But it does look like you are having fun.

The master at work! I’m reading the instructions from McleanVA with great trepidation. Hope to try one soon.
Have you tried the frontline interlocking clamps?
