Charlie – my my glue ups are not always perfect, but my Screw Ups are always pristine!

AaronK – I think that if you search the web you’ll find that planing glued up panels is very common as the wood always tends to want to wonder during those glue ups.

One trick I use to minimize movement is to take some sand paper, and rub it against itself over the strips after the glue is on them (before they are put together) – some of the glass particles will rub off on the glue, and when putting the strips together will add friction between them to keep them from wandering about.
