I had a bunch of hard maple left over from my last project, so I decided to turn out a bunch of cutting boards. One problem I faced, though, was that when I glued up my table tops and cutting boards they didn’t stay flat with the clamping pressure.
These are just some pictures of some presses I made out of MDF to hold the table tops and cutting boards flat while I clamp them up. The small one is 18”x18”, the large one is 30”x30”. I wrapped the edges in packing tape so the glue wouldn’t stick. So far they work pretty well, and I never again intend on gluing up a table top without some sort of pressure to keep it flat.
