I thought it might be of interest to post more WIP photos so here goes.
Here is one just clamped with the excess glue oozing out and dripping down. Even if I limit the amount of glue used, I still get a large amount of squeeze out. At least I know the glue fills the joint.
After allowing the board to cure in the clamps for 12 hours, this is what I am left with. Theses drips will have to be sanded off prior to taking to the wide belt.
After just a few passes with a belt sander and 60 grit paper I have removed all the major drips and this one is ready to go to the wide belt.
Once back for the wide belt, this is what I have. Clean, flat and ready for trimming. (This one will be a round board.)
How do you cut the round?
Mark the center and draw a large circle with a trammel then cut the board rough on a band saw. Final rounding and smoothing is done on a 12" disc sander.
