How To Make An Edge To Edge Glue Joint – WOOD magazine
Edge to edge joints make wider boards from narrow ones. It’s one of the nine essential joints you should consider for your project. WOOD magazine’s Craig Ruegsegger shows you how to make the joint, and why it might be the best choice for your project.
Does it look like you’re missing some videos in your playlist? If you see a gray Private window, don’t worry, you haven’t missed a thing. In fact you should be excited because that tells you we have more videos to come in the weeks to follow. I could tell you the titles but that would ruin the surprise. Thanks for watching and enjoy – now go make something!

Lovely pieces of wood there. I always say NEVER sand the mating edges. It can seal the edges and the glue may not sink into the wood. Sawn edges are best, planed edges are okay. Excellent video.
1:23 Love this but doesn’t glue strength decay over time?
Make certain that you have a straight or planed edge on the outboard side of the cut. I had a mild bow on my outboard edge on a board causing an uneven edge for the glue joint.
Too dependent on expensive machines.
!!GREAT TIPS!! …Thanks and greetings from Mexico, my friend.
What i do when i glue iwood together and bits of glue pops up i just get a damp cloth and wwipe it off before it gets hard
Good instruction, one glue up complete using the table saw and this technique. Did recheck the alignment of the blade, had to realign and reset the angle to 90 degrees, then things smoothed out completely.
Good solid presentation of information. I’m just a beginner, but I think I read somewhere that the University of Michigan did a study (They are always’ studying something up there.) that found a glue joint is 40% stronger if glue is applied to BOTH surfaces. I don’t know about that but have taken to doing it, just in case.
Thank you for producing this video. The little trick accounting for variations from 90 degrees saved me a significant amount of time.
Additionally thank you for demonstrating how to check if boards are aligned properly with the double square.
please show how to do this without using any power tools. I have hand saw, small plane, 3 chisels, mallet, hammer, screwdrivers, T- square, ruler and pencil. And mothers kitchen table. thank you.
Wow my friend thank you for your tips
I really enjoyed your video
I’m new to wood working and this video was very informative…
Just wipe off squeezed out glue with damp cloth immediately after clamping. Glue is water soluble and wipes up nicely. Thanks for video.
I don’t understand why you wouldn’t wipe the beads of squeezed-out glue immediately, while they’re still very liquid and super easy to wipe away, or at the very latest–a few minutes after clamping.
"I like using my finger cuz its always there"
I don’t know where my fingers are😂
What if you don’t have a table saw. I don’t have enough room to store one.
"How can glue be strong enough to hold boards together?"
Asks a person who has no idea how glue works.
Thanks a ton for that glue strength demonstration. 👍
Awesome video – thanks for posting!
Thank you for mentioning the type of blade used on the table saw. Definitely need to change my blade
thanks for sharing. What happens if the boards were to be 10 feet long, 1 foot wide each and 2 inch thick? The glue alone won’t cut it! I don’t think biscuits are any better but some major thick diameter dowels or splines and the glue would be essential. Let me know what you think, and how you would join two long boards l10 feet x 1 foot x 2 inch thick) say southern yellow pine to make a 24 inch wide by 10 feet long counter top.
What about using a jointer
Cool. So that means that even 1/4 inch would be fine to glue?
I watched 100s of videos for woodworking since I just started it and you answered several of my questions in one video! Thanks a lot.
"I prefer to use my finger. It’s always there and I know where it is" hahaha
what kind of wood is that which is so weak such that it cannot hold a person ?
that wood panel was a paid actor
In case break
Thin bead of glue
The video quality looks like from the 80’s. But anyway, thanks for this great tip!
detail be better
This method does not account well for wood movement, ends will likely split with enough moisture.
If the glue is stronger than wood, shouldn’t we make furniture out of glue rather then wood?
Could someone please help me? Would this support 200 pounds I’m worried of it not holding
Very good vídeo
I give a 10 to the way you explain
What is the name of the glue….
What is the name of the paste
Great video, bot fast threw table saw procedure but good.
Finished face of the boards up/down on the table saw is a great tip! I futz around a lot to make the blade perfectly vertical but flipping the boards means it doesn’t have to be perfect. (Insert forehead slap here)
No riving knife. Instant fail.
Good video, but I cringe at the lack of a riving knife 🙁
@1:13, you don’t wanna miss that part! hahaha. Great video, thanks for sharing, been ALWAYS wondering about that!!
"I use a finger. Its always there and I know where it is" … Highlight of the video
What kinda glue you use?
Good Stuff 👍👍 So if I wanted to add a couple flat braces underneath glue should hold them so I won’t need wood screws right?
Great tip. Chiseling the glue at "jello" stage. Fanks.
Thanks. Very informative!
Thank you for all of that very good advice.
