During the construction of our new entertainment center, there was a lot of difficulty getting the edge glued boards aligned- even though biscuits were used. To make matters worse, the problems occurred in places where culls wouldn’t fit using my version 1.0 glue up/clamp holder. That clamp holder wasn’t really designed very well, in hindsight. The new version is a little taller with spaces between each clamp support. This allows the use of culls/clamps and access to the underside of the glue ups to be sure they are flat against the pipe clamps. The two clamp supports are separate to accommodate any width panel. In addition, I made some dedicated clamping alignment culls. They are 1.5” x 2” x 48” and the glue contact sides are covered with strips of cushioned vinyl flooring. I remember seeing these clamping culls posted on Lumberjocks but couldn’t find them again so I can’t give proper credit to the designer.
This shows the obsolete version 1.0 clamp holder.
Now to figure out where to store it!!
