so i’ve laminated two of three pieces of whacky wood around my form to make a table apron.
i’ve had it clamped up all afternoon now, using titebond III.

questions is: can i clamp on the final piece tonight, or will that be stressing the prior glue-up?
i know it only needs to be clamped for 30 minutes, but they say wait 24 hours before stressing, right? not sure if adding the other piece would be considered stress or not.

TBIII is amazing glue, I’d set the third piece, and sleep well

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
