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?

  3. Mark Brewer on November 20, 2022 at 3:31 am

    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.

    Gracias!!

    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.

  9. Roger Anderson on November 20, 2022 at 3:41 am

    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.

  11. Skizzy Smith on November 20, 2022 at 3:42 am

    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.

  12. Juan Gamez on November 20, 2022 at 3:43 am

    Wow my friend thank you for your tips
    I really enjoyed your video

  13. Paul Truback on November 20, 2022 at 3:45 am

    I’m new to wood working and this video was very informative…

  14. Randy Kubick on November 20, 2022 at 3:45 am

    Just wipe off squeezed out glue with damp cloth immediately after clamping. Glue is water soluble and wipes up nicely. Thanks for video.

  15. John Derrico on November 20, 2022 at 3:46 am

    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😂

  17. jdjeep98 on November 20, 2022 at 3:47 am

    What if you don’t have a table saw. I don’t have enough room to store one.

  18. Judman on November 20, 2022 at 3:47 am

    "How can glue be strong enough to hold boards together?"

    Asks a person who has no idea how glue works.

  19. Sunil Budke on November 20, 2022 at 3:49 am

    Thanks a ton for that glue strength demonstration. 👍

  20. Rob Law on November 20, 2022 at 3:49 am

    Awesome video – thanks for posting!

  21. Jean Vieira on November 20, 2022 at 3:50 am

    Thank you for mentioning the type of blade used on the table saw. Definitely need to change my blade

  22. james bachour on November 20, 2022 at 3:51 am

    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.

  23. Mike Sheffield Music on November 20, 2022 at 3:54 am

    What about using a jointer

  24. eugkra33 on November 20, 2022 at 3:54 am

    Cool. So that means that even 1/4 inch would be fine to glue?

  25. EdgeLoop on November 20, 2022 at 3:55 am

    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

  27. Cableman on November 20, 2022 at 3:56 am

    what kind of wood is that which is so weak such that it cannot hold a person ?

  28. Siva Experiment 42.9320 on November 20, 2022 at 3:56 am

    The video quality looks like from the 80’s. But anyway, thanks for this great tip!

  31. JYC high frequency woodwork machine on November 20, 2022 at 4:03 am

    detail be better

  32. Oliver Houston on November 20, 2022 at 4:04 am

    This method does not account well for wood movement, ends will likely split with enough moisture.

  33. Anthony Guittap on November 20, 2022 at 4:06 am

    Briliante amigo

  34. Hongyu zhang on November 20, 2022 at 4:06 am

    If the glue is stronger than wood, shouldn’t we make furniture out of glue rather then wood?

  35. M Jz on November 20, 2022 at 4:06 am

    Could someone please help me? Would this support 200 pounds I’m worried of it not holding

  36. Javier Flores on November 20, 2022 at 4:09 am

    Very good vídeo
    I give a 10 to the way you explain

  37. azmath asj on November 20, 2022 at 4:09 am

    What is the name of the glue….

  38. francis joseph on November 20, 2022 at 4:11 am

    What is the name of the paste

  39. MC on November 20, 2022 at 4:11 am

    Great video, bot fast threw table saw procedure but good.

  40. AngryRed Banjo on November 20, 2022 at 4:12 am

    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)

  41. Justin F on November 20, 2022 at 4:13 am

    No riving knife. Instant fail.

  42. Marcous Awad on November 20, 2022 at 4:20 am

    👌👌👌

  43. Rusty Pietrzak on November 20, 2022 at 4:21 am

    Good video, but I cringe at the lack of a riving knife 🙁

  44. DaJaguar on November 20, 2022 at 4:26 am

    @1:13, you don’t wanna miss that part! hahaha. Great video, thanks for sharing, been ALWAYS wondering about that!!

  45. Siddharth Kumar on November 20, 2022 at 4:27 am

    "I use a finger. Its always there and I know where it is" … Highlight of the video

  46. anita delarosa on November 20, 2022 at 4:28 am

    What kinda glue you use?

  47. Miguel Salami on November 20, 2022 at 4:28 am

    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?

  48. rollvideo on November 20, 2022 at 4:29 am

    Great tip. Chiseling the glue at "jello" stage. Fanks.

  49. Luciano Panepucci on November 20, 2022 at 4:30 am

    Thanks. Very informative!

  50. aartmark on November 20, 2022 at 4:30 am

    Thank you for all of that very good advice.
