Plain glued edge joints

Two methods are available:

  • a) straight shot joints coated with glue and immediately rubbed together, with the natural suck of the glue providing sufficient pull to effect a close joint, and known as rubbedjoints;
  • b) joints planed fractionally hollow by the thickness of a piece of thin blotting-paper and pulled together with cramping/clamping actions. The advantage of the latter method is that the ends of the jointed boards are forced into compression and will not open if there is any subsequent shrinkage. Cold-setting resin glues can be used for these cramped-up joints, giving plenty of time for assembly so that boards warped in the length can be cramped at half pressure, tapped down flush and the cramps then tightened.
