I have been asked to build a pulpit for a local congregation. All straight
forward, except for the glue up. It is made up of 5 panels (frame and
panel construction). The center three panels are 17 1/8" wide and the two
side panel, which are parallel to each other, are 10 1/8" wide. The width
of the pulpit is 42".
Also the center three panels are 7" taller than the side two to fit a step
in the chancel area, which is not a problem, I will glue it up upside down.
Any hints on how to clamp this thing up?
I would imagine gluing it up in sections would be the smart thing to do.
A carpenter friend of mine suggested using corner blocks cut the the inside
angle and screwing the panels to the blocks. That would work and would add
strength to the whole. I am not too sure how it would look.
