That’s a really cool way to do a glue up. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Randy, I am so much enjoying this blog.
I would be interrested in hearing what your wife says when she sees what you did to the old TV cabinet.

Never heard of a Gobar Deck. Interesting. Do you think dowels would be just as effective as strips?

Yes – I’ve seen dowels used, also fiberglass rods. I used wood strips because I had a bundle of laths on hand and I ripped them in thirds giving me 1/4” thick by ~1/2” wide strips. Much lower cost than dowels.

When my wife finds out about the TV cabinet I may let you know what she says :)
