|Here's a quick tip that might make
gluing up panels a little easier.
When edge-gluing several boards to make a panel, I start by laying the boards
in order on the pipe clamps to be certain that they're arranged the way I want
them. Then, I very carefully stand each board up on edge to apply the glue.
The only problem is that a board
on edge (especially a wide one) will tip over at the slightest bump. And when
one board goes, they all go over -- just like row of dominoes.
To prevent this from happening, I clip a spring clamp on one end of each board
(see photo). The spring clamps the board up above the pipe, and the handle serves
as a stand.
