Edge Joints

Create a strong panel from several narrow boards using edge joints.


Edge joints create a panel from several narrow boards. The result is stronger and more resistant to splitting and warping than a single wide piece of wood.

Step 1

With all edges perfectly square, lay the boards on equally spaced bar clamps. Adjust them for visual appeal, then mark with a pencil for later realignment.

Step 2

Turn all but the first board on edge. Apply a thin, even coat of woodworking glue to one edge of each joint with a small brush. Be sure board edges are completely coated.

Step 3

Align boards on the bottom clamps. Place scrap wood between the clamps and workpiece. Tighten clamps. Turn over the workpiece and clamp. Leave clamped until glue dries.
