« Part 1: Rough Dimensions for a Cedar Gate Part 2 of Cedar Gate Build series no next part

Once I had the lumber roughly the dimensions I wanted as well as having one face and the edges jointed, it was time to get gluing! I pulled out the domino and started joining the two jointed faces on each board with dominos and glue.

This was followed by A LOT of clamping, although not as much as some have done for their projects. Clamping cauls were used on some parts while pine spacers were used on others simply to avoid marks or indentations on the cedar itself.

The main components for the frame are now glued up into thicker components and ready to be sized and planed to final dimensions and thickness. Once this step is complete, the dado will be marked out and made with my router on each piece.
