The Glue Up

Here you will see the steps in the glue up of the weave strips…

The strips are ready for assembly..

After applying glue to the various surfaces, I assemble the 5 pieces in order and secure with blue painters tape.. this is easy to remove later…

While just using tape can be enough, I like to clamp between two cauls to ensure that the width of the piece remains constant along the entire length.. and it aids by applying even pressure on the strips being glued..As each set is glued and taped, it is added to the clamps..

This is the slab of Huon Pine ready for ripping … for the background of the Open Weave LL..

Everything out of the clamps and the Huon Pine dressed to size…

After a quick clean up of the glue joints…. It will be time for the most awaited part… the cutting of the various pieces to form the pattern…
