High Intensity Glue-Up Events!
I recently assembled a large bookcase together with dovetails all around on a 14”wide case. This was the largest glue up to date, and found that the biggest challenge was dealing with the clamps once all of the surfaces were prepared for fitting. It all worked out, but not without a little down-to-the-wire stress in getting the case all squared up properly before everything set. I know the photo below looks a little distorted, trust me the case was dead straight, although it looks a little curved. ;)
Any pointers from folks out there on how you plan around big glue events such as this? Clamping, glue application techniques, clamp blocks, etc are all fair game to me.
