Ⓕ Best Way For Gluing Wood Together To Get Thick Pieces (ep86)

Ⓕ Best Way For Gluing Wood Together To Get Thick Pieces (ep86)

More information in the website article – https://nickferry.com/2018/03/best-way-for-gluing-wood-together-to-get-thick-pieces-ep86/
including links to the wood clamps

Sometimes you need to glue boards together to make up thicker stock for table legs, furniture making & turning projects. This is the best way for gluing wood together to get thicker boards. Super simple but effective way to keep all the wood aligned while clamping just by using a parallel clamp and some f style clamps. I find this method a lot easier than using cauls, salt or nails.

    Basics aren’t always shared! Awesome vid

  4. G Money on January 19, 2023 at 2:49 am

    Guess I need to buy some parallel clamps lol

  5. Suzy Leong Russel.K on January 19, 2023 at 2:49 am

    Good one..Will try the same…

  7. James Hackett on January 19, 2023 at 2:51 am

    Very useful tip, how would I glue up something wider say eight inch? I’m thinking of using wood blocks bolted together to sandwich the glue up. Again, thanks for the tip!

  8. Walter Fahmy on January 19, 2023 at 2:51 am

    EXCELLENT, thank you.

  9. Kathy V. on January 19, 2023 at 2:52 am

    Can’t you clean the glue off before it dries? Thanks

  10. sandysue202 on January 19, 2023 at 2:53 am

    Nice! That slippery glue has always been an issue for me. Now I know how to deal with it.

  11. Ace Many on January 19, 2023 at 2:56 am

    This is common sense….duh!!!

  12. Albert Strong on January 19, 2023 at 2:56 am

    Nothing new.

  13. Evelyn Mueller on January 19, 2023 at 2:57 am

    Awesome tip which I will be using on my projects! Thank Nick

  14. RiderCoach Danielle on January 19, 2023 at 2:57 am

    MAN you’re nice. "This isn’t that big of a thing, I’m sure lots of people have thought of this." "I appreciate you taking the time to watch this."

    Me, a rough beginner with a LITTLE bit of skill: lol yeah I already thought of it and you sure am lucky I took time out of my busy day of sitting on the couch with the cat oh wait, no, I haven’t thought of ANYTHING and my day’s not that busy

  15. B. Kennedy on January 19, 2023 at 2:59 am

    I’ve been doing this since I started woodworking BUT the SALT tip is what I really needed! Thanks.

  16. 2DRINKSMINIMUM on January 19, 2023 at 3:00 am

    Would this work for glueing two very wide boards together?

  17. Ken Harper on January 19, 2023 at 3:00 am

    Thanks Nick

  18. Kathy V. on January 19, 2023 at 3:02 am

    Omg you have to put glue on top of glue? I was only gluing one piece to the other. I never thought to put glue on BOTH pieces before sticking them together.
    It’s a wonder my creations are still holding strong! Lol

  19. Robert Kuivjogi on January 19, 2023 at 3:04 am

    How to get edges parallel? In this videos edges were not parallel. what do do if I do not have the Besseys parallel clamps, but I must glue panels?

  20. J Kappenman on January 19, 2023 at 3:05 am

    You can rub them together a few times and it will take the slip out and stay exactly where you want it

  21. Nick Ferry on January 19, 2023 at 3:06 am

    a lot more woodworking articles, info and plans here – https://nickferry.com/ – and the article for this video with tool list here – https://nickferry.com/2018/03/best-way-for-gluing-wood-together-to-get-thick-pieces-ep86/

  22. Bob Whelk on January 19, 2023 at 3:07 am

    What is the salt thing?

  23. Peco Simplu on January 19, 2023 at 3:08 am

    Thanks very much. I’m a beginner and this helps me a lot.
    👍👏👏👏

  24. Wilfredo Durand on January 19, 2023 at 3:09 am

    Great video Nick, what kind of glue do you use in the video to join the pieces? "Titebond 2 Glue For Most Projects"

  25. Lance Baldwin on January 19, 2023 at 3:10 am

    Thank You 👍🤘😊👊

  26. Dave's Tiny Workshop | Other Stuff I Make on January 19, 2023 at 3:10 am

    I’ve never seen this method before, the parallel clamp usage is a brilliant idea! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  27. W M on January 19, 2023 at 3:10 am

    Neat
    Thanks

  28. Amr Fwws on January 19, 2023 at 3:13 am

    Use sawdust for the seasoning, problem solved.

  29. sunalwaysshinesonTVs on January 19, 2023 at 3:14 am

    …this video is 7 mins too long.

  30. Earl D on January 19, 2023 at 3:14 am

    Multiple issues:
    1) This works ONLY if the wood is EXACTLY the same width, but if your rough gluing up a Chair leg blank, why cut it to such exact dimensions when you’re just going to cut it later anyway so clamping both sides with a parallel clamp is useless without a lot of extra work.
    2) A much better way is to clamp the wood with the edge that you want lined up down against the clamp edge so that you know that one edge will be even and
    3) the pressure from a Clamp radiates out in a 45-degree angle from the clamp. He really should be using a Caul or at the very least an unglued set of boards on each edge so that the clamping pressure radiates further out.

  31. Vespa on January 19, 2023 at 3:20 am

    true this is basic stuff every carpenter should know…

  32. Depopa on January 19, 2023 at 3:21 am

    i love how he just appeared in the room, i bet that little detail took way more time to do than it should have haha

  33. HOBrian2003 on January 19, 2023 at 3:21 am

    Sawdust works instead of salt.

  34. Mitch G on January 19, 2023 at 3:21 am

    Just did my 2×4 benchtop, I ended up glueing up 2 at a time, upright at first to allow the weight distribution to spread the glue a bit+ it won’t spill out while you do the others in the event that the pieces your gluing have a bit of warp , then just did the ol glue ,turn, connect, repeat thing. Seemed to work but as always I wish I had more clamp’s it’s a good glueup, but it could a been better

  35. Faron Mastin on January 19, 2023 at 3:22 am

    I just done a glue joint like that wish I would have seen this video before then.

  36. Ed Reusser on January 19, 2023 at 3:24 am

    oh my god. never seen that before but I will be doing it from now on. I do a LOT of this kind of work and I have never heard of this before.

  37. Linda Smith on January 19, 2023 at 3:24 am

    That’s nothing I’ve ever seen before either and I’m glad you shared that with me

  38. boofuls on January 19, 2023 at 3:24 am

    Titebond don’t recommend 🧂 as it can effect the chemical composition of the glue and weaken the joint .Great video btw 👍

  39. Ryan Gagnon on January 19, 2023 at 3:25 am

    Just use bar clamps or pipe clamps so they rest on the bar to get them flush. Tighten them up then flush them up then tighten again and flush them with a piece of stock wood and a hammer after they are tight. repeat as needed

  40. Claude Elliott on January 19, 2023 at 3:26 am

    Simple but effective!!

  41. Lora McClamrock on January 19, 2023 at 3:27 am

    Great idea thanks for sharing.

  42. Ben Jenkins on January 19, 2023 at 3:31 am

    Oh, that’s awesome. What a great idea. Thanks!

  43. Brian Hawkins on January 19, 2023 at 3:31 am

    I’m definitely trying this tomorrow

  44. Michael A. Rodriguez on January 19, 2023 at 3:31 am

  47. FlyFishermanSuper on January 19, 2023 at 3:35 am

    Great tip. Thanks much.

  48. STFU on January 19, 2023 at 3:39 am

    CAN U JUST GET TO THE POINT ALREADY?

  49. Kyrill Kryvenko on January 19, 2023 at 3:42 am

    Whenever the parallel clamp cannot be used, I use wooden dowels.

  50. A Jurić on January 19, 2023 at 3:48 am

    instead of salt you can also use any grit sandpaper and kind of scrape some of it over the glue up surface, works same way as the salt but more likely to have on hand in the shop
