The absolute worst time to find out you’ve made a mistake is while the glue is drying. So this part focuses strongly on the importance of a dry assembly, which I consider to be an essential part of the glue up process. By the end we’ll have a partially glue-up entertainment center.
A few of the topics covered in this part:
- Gluing trim pieces.
- Using biscuits.
- Clamping strategies.
- Using a wood filler to hide miter flaws.
- Cutting the big bevels on the top and bottom trim.
- Dry assembly strategy.
- Measuring and cutting the back panels.
- Initial glueup.
