Page 3

I will show you two of the many ways to glue top and back plates. In this image a piece of particle board or plywood is used as a base to nail to, tape waxed paper on the board in the area of the glue joint. Lay the pieces to be glued in front of you , on the board set four penny finish nails along the edge nearest you, leave three eight's inch gap between the pieces, spread glue heavily between the pieces, pull the joint tight, put nails along the far edge, put wax paper and weight on the joint, bend nails inward to clamp joint and it is done.
