Welcome to Woodworker++

This blog is intended to be a journal of my progress as a woodworker. Grab a drink, maybe some popcorn, sit back and enjoy a glimpse into my woodworking projects, both failed and successful. Why should you care what I do, or what I have to say? You shouldn't, but just maybe I can keep you from making the same mistakes that I had to learn the hard way.

Lost pics... top glued up

Unfortunately, I lost the pictures for the glue-up process. But here it is anyway.
  1. Milled the lumber to 3/4" x 3" x 66".
  2. Drilled 3, 1/2" holes in each board. 2" from each end then in the middle.
  3. I only glued up 4 boards at a time using the all-thread as a makeshift clamp and some Erwin quick clamps.
  4. The last group of boards I glued up 3 of the boards and then routed the dog holes on the other two. More on this later.
  5. I put all the sections together using the all-thread bars and pipe clamps.
