Welcome back to another edition of “very informative woodworking videos” where I show how to glue up a table top with no alignment aids. .

Getting the boards for my table top ripped to final width. Doing these longer boards at my day job shop because I can use the sliding table to get a perfect straight edge before ripping them to final width. .

I’m curious if there is any cabinet makes that use a drawer slide they like better the @blum_inc ? They are so smooth, durable and easy to use. There are some other decent options, but nothing that’s close in my mind. These are Blum Tandems. .

I’m pretty excited about the new addition to the shop. If I’m remembering correctly I haven’t turned something since shops class in Grade 10... 2004!! .

What’s a good fist project on the lathe for me to try?

#tooltuesday belongs to the cordless @makita.ca jig saw. My boss picked it up, and we’ve only used it on one job and already I’m wondering why I’ve been using cords for so long. Obviously I have a thing for makita, but whatever your brand is you gotta make the move to cordless. Life is just so much easier.
We picked this up @constructionfasteners , go get you one. .

Any job site tools that just can’t be replaced with cordless?

Rough cutting the top of the table I’m working on. This is before glue up of these pieces. I’ve started laying out all my pieces and rough cutting them in one shot, rather then moving each of them to the saw. Makes things way faster. .

I, and many of you, only get limited shop time. What are some simple efficiency tips that help you make the most a night in the shop?

Got the two legs for the waterfall table glued up. Will do the top tonight. No biscuits or dominos or anything in these, just a little care when you’re putting the clamps on and getting a nice flat panel isn’t to difficult. I often do use biscuits to help, just to make it that much easier, but I didn’t want to take the time on these small legs... for the top I probably will. .

Are you using biscuits, dominos, something else or nothing at all for your panel glueups?

In woodworking there are many different techniques to achieve just about every task... and I only have a hard stance on one. A squiggly glue line is really the only way to put glue on a board. Any other way just doesn’t compare. .
.

It’s a hard stance, but there comes a point where a guy just has to put his foot down. #squigglylines .

Work flow. Getting a straight edge on these pieces with the track saw and then cutting them to width at the table saw. I did speed this up a little, but each piece took just over a minute for the 8 pieces that I did. Pretty quick and efficient. .
.
.
I had previously ripped these 2x10s in half, cause I know these boards will bow and twist. From there I put a straight edge and rip it to my final width, which leaves me with a very straight piece for a solid glue up. .

This is a picture from when I was gluing up the mitres on the white oak table. Things were slipping and moving and stress was high. Tape, and some clamps in all directions and they finally lined up half decent. .
.
.
Later on I realized I should have used band clamps... life would have been so much easier. You ever have a brainwave idea right after you finish doing something the hard way? .

I built this piece right before Christmas last year, and tomorrow I’m starting another very similar one, only smaller! I think it’s going to look really nice lower to the ground! A simple piece, but one of my favourites! I love the mitred legs... such a clean look. .
.
.
It’s a good feeling when you finish a project and then you get inquiries about doing something similar. It’s a pretty obvious sign people are liking what your work. .

#tooltuesday goes out to this Makita radio. Good sound, ran all day on one battery, and charged my phone. Really nice little radio. I won this at this IG meet up with @constructionfasteners and I’ve used it a ton already! Thanks guys. .

You guys got music in your headphones or radio on the job?
