I agree with Jo Lydon. Just remember to put blocks under your two outside clamps on both ends of the clamp and put the middle clamp on top facing down, not underneath like the outside two. The blocks will raise the height of the two outside clamps (off the table) and allow the upper middle clamp to come down closer to the wood and reduce the cupping. Remember that too much pressure from your clamps will not only cup the wood but could end up starving the joint of all the glue due to excessive squeeze out. Just a thought, hope it helped Dewayne.
