What’s On the Bench

  • Marc spent the week with Darrel Peart cutting biscuit joinery
  • Matt is making boxes to go inside boxes
  • Shannon died a little when he had to slum it and buy lumber at Home Depot

Assembly Mistakes

If you are a woodworker you have glued the wrong part to another or had an assembly come out wonky. You had temporarily lost your mind in the heat of a glue up and done something weird. We take some time to share our individual screw ups and how we were able to fix them…or not. Some of the tips and tricks we use to aid in our hectic glue ups are:

  • Clamping cauls and custom made dovetail cauls
  • Long open time glue
  • Spring Joints
  • Sub Assemblies
  • Dry run/rehearsal
