If you are glueing up two panels edge to edge and clamp up that union, how
thick is that glue line? Naturally you would want to put a minimal amount
but complete coverage layer in the bottom of the lap joints, but any more
than enough to cover is too much.
Earlier this year as mentioned in another post on this thread I was working
on a project with 96 lap joints. These joints were 1/2" wide and 3/64" deep
for a combined thickness of 3/32". The joints were tight enough to hold the
assembly together with out glue as proven by the test fit. Applying the
proper amount of glue posed no problem with fit.
Had there been any weak joints the 8 assemblies would have flown apart
during their 3-4 trips through the drum sander.
The video demo link provided showed a tight fitting joint that encompassed
each piece of wood, not a lap joint or "edge to edge" where any amout of
adhesive would fit.
If you put wood glue on the insdie surfaces of one of these tight joint
"pockets" the wood would likely swell and the joint would no longer fit
together. I am sure most experienced wood workers have experiences this
trauma at some point after doing very precise machining and then gluing. A
mallet and prayer comes to mind in these cases...LOL
Agreed and point taken on the thinness of the glue in the joint, though.

The colonial guy sure has you doing loops.
I am watching. Comical how he has set you up
in your own noose. Comical in how you walked
right into it.
No, look at your bowel, Janice.
My dear departed wife spent months in agony
before passing away. All down to you with your
crank posts on glutens.
Whilst it took me time to find you, I do have
I have little to do in the evenings now.
Your legacy haunts you, now.
