I figured this on my own after many try’s looking for an easier way to glue up a cutting board.

I bought some large hand screw clamps and stood them on the table. Each strip of wood is glued and layered in.

The clamps keep everything lined up.

After the glue up the pipe clamps do the rest of the work.

The clamps are lined with duct tape to keep the glue from sticking to the clamps.

Its so simple even a Czech man can do it.

Fantastic solution for stacking and gluing. The packing tape is genius idea

Thanks Roger the packing tape may be better than duct tape. Duct tape hangs up sometimes.

Another thing I learned today cut a spacer the same width as the cutting boards and place it on the

table between jaws for faster alignment . Will post a pic later.
