One of the most amazing properties of wood is that it can be easily and permanently bonded. To that end, craftsmen have developed dozens of adhesives and hundreds of clamping tools, each with its own purpose. Nick explains the applications for each type of adhesive, demonstrates the use of various clamps, and troubleshoots common gluing/clamping problems. He covers both simple and complex assemblies, as well as bonding veneers and laminates. Along the way there are plenty of useful tips, ingenious assembly aids, suggestions for clamp storage, and plans for eleven different clamps that you can make. 128 pages, over 200 illustrations and photos in PDF format.
