I was the oen that asked if I could glue up boards using my router as a
jointer to make boards wide enough to build a bookshelf. The plan
called for plywood but I am trying to save money as I already have alot
of rough cut red oak.
Anyway, can I glue these boards togther to former larger pannels
without needing to use buscuits or dowels? Someone told me that I
needed to use one or the other because over time the wood would want to
separate where they are glued togther.
Also, I still have polyurethane glue left from building that cutting
board. Can I use it? It was a bear to clean up though on my cutting
board. (From the foam out). Or is regular yellow glue just as good and
lasts just as long?
Speaking of that, when glueing up pannels I have one book that says to
orient the end grain in the same direction, and another that says to
alternate them. Which is right?
