I'm looking for options. While trying to figure out a way to clamp
this carcase, I tried one way that sure won't work. Hot melt glued-on
cleats and today's veneered cherry plywood don't mix very well at all.
I'm betting it's the ply just under the veneer, some sort of MDF, it
appears. Initial testing with double-sided taped cleats shows some
promise, and any other ideas are welcomed. This is a 45 degree join on
a corner cabinet base unit. More pics at http://tomeshew.spaces.live.com /
Thanks. I looked at that thread last week, and one method that Chris
Friesen suggested will work for the top of the carcase. However, there
are two more areas further down the case which'll need clamping
somehow. Maybe some type of notched stand to set the case onto when
drying will allow me to use that method at the bottom also. Then maybe
the "tourniclamp" for the center area. This is the lower case of a two-
piece corner cabinet, the smaller of the two, no less. Looking forward
to the big one. Tom
