If you have a small shop like I do, here is a glue table that can be clamped to your table saw top. I used ¾ Cabinet plywood with a 4” high leg. I finished the top with tongue oil so it can be wiped down with water. It works great for gluing projects 24”x 22”. I hang it on the wall when not in use.

Great idea, I use a frame jig that is made to fit my tablesaw. Excellent for any frame any size. Makes it quick easy, and most important = SQUARE. (laughing)

I used two pieces of MDF glued together for a dead flat surface, then I put 3/4” X 2” rail squarely on two sides, and added toggle clamps. Made lots of raised panel doors with this “glue up jig”.
Yours looks like it will serve you well for a long time … Can you clamp for pocket holes??
Oh, by the way … Welcome to LJ’s, I’m looking forward to your future posts.

Thanks for this. It is a great idea for any size shop. I’m going to be thanking you with every glue up from here on because I’m going to make one of these for my glue ups.

I suggest also adding some silicone free paste wax to the base. When you have glue drips it comes off real easy. I use WAXILIT 22-30 from Johnson’s Workbench. This was highlighted in the recent Fine Woodworking mag (March/April 2013) and it really works nicely.

iminmyshop, thanks for the tip on the paste wax. That was my one hangup for making this, I was afraid I would glue what I was making to the table. (laughing)
