    @x3seriesx tile? porcelin tiles? be specific… btw he uses clamps with yellow rubbers so you won’t need TILES.

    I can’t hear what he’s saying.

    What type of glue do you use? In normal conditions simple wood glue sets so that you can work with a piece in ~2h, but if your work pieces that you are about to glue together are straigt and doesn’t require clamping pressure to straigten them, you can remove clamps after 30mins.

    What would be an alternative to clamps? Because I’m going to need to be joining long pieces, like a 4 foot to a 6 foot.

    you are using far too much glue on your ninety degee joinery..with today’s modern glues (like titebond II for instance) applying glue to one surface is sufficient. This has two advantages. It saves glue and time and it reduces squeeze out which creates less mess and makes clean up easier.

    I already did that but still the sound is not that good unlike the other videos uploaded here in youtube that the sound are quite good and I don’t have any diffulty hearing the sound.

    To be honest & NOT rude, I was & maybe most were; looking for jointing techniques that do NOT include glue as the primary support of the joint. Dovetails, Ribbons, bow-tie, etc. I hope to be learning these methods sometime in the near future through my training, but I would LOVE to have a heads-up so when the day comes "do you know how to" I will be able to have at least a primitive understanding of what I’ll be doing. I mean, Your doing good, it’s what I’ve BEEN doing.
