Hello. A quick question to see if anyone can relate. Sometimes when I do edge grain glue ups, (for cutting boards, table panels, etc) I’ll get tiny little holes in the glue joint. This is after boards have been ran down a joiner, glued, and clamped. I don’t notice until I take off the clamps a few hours later, but I’m wondering if others have ran into this problem, and how do you combat it? Is it from clamping too little? Too tight? Thanks in advance!

Show us a picture, not sure what you mean by “tiny little holes”.

It’s from your edges not being straight enough. Run them through the jointer, swipe with a jointing plane, etc. until it’s truly flat and you’ll get rid of the holes in the glue joint. Even off of a tablesaw isn’t necessarily straight enough.

-- The quality of one's woodworking is directly related to the amount of flannel worn.

This may be it. Maybe a few extra passes on the jointer than 1 or 2 to clean it up. Will try!
