So this weekend I got my planks ready for joining for the table and successfully joined 2 planks together. The hardest part was that one of the planks consisted of three boards end joined together. I used biscuits and glue, I realized after putting the assembly together after do the dry fit that I need longer pipe clamps to close the end grain pieces together. but I got these together and then after the glue had 8 hours to cure, I wiped the boards with mineral spirits to show the grain to my wife. I am very happy so far, I have a lot more gluing to do since it is 10 planks wide.

I’ll have to write a review for the fulton 4-way clamps. I bought them for my birthday 6 months ago and used them for the first time. They aren’t the easiest to get setup but wow they did an awesome job for this type of glue up.
