"Yes Daniel, glue application is important. I also keep in mind that one of my surfaces is end grain and that can effect strength of the joint by absorbing more of the glue than the other close grain surface, [see photo above] this could also…"

"I have to say what my mentor always said,,,,,"it's all about the glue joint". Simply meaning the glue will be stronger than the wood. If you stood on it after thorough curing, the wood would splinter, not the joint. Bit unorthodox,…"

"Sounds like a good plan, hadn't thought about stippling it on with a brush, and glad to hear you're keeping that brush pretty dry - should work.  To help keep everything flat, after you clamp down the material, you might want to use a…"

Paul Craig replied to Paul Craig's discussion What's on your workbench?
"Yeah that looks good. I go the other direction so I don't have to add a headstock veneer to cover the joint which is usually a bit off/messed up due to me doing it all by hand tools and practically no jigs. That's changing now."
