« Part 12: Island Frame work Complete Part 13 of Kitchen Island Cart series no next part

I needed to go shopping for more clamps ( it’s true never have enough) so I decided to buy 4 of the Bessey H style pipe clamps $80 or so later

I am back in the shop doing test run with the new clamps and they didn’t fail.. as a side note I found this YouTube video on the use of cauls and pvc pipe so it used it

The idea is to apply pressure accross the end grain of the panel using cauls so I put 2 cauls under the end grain and 2 over the end grain thus keeping the panel from bowing and he also showed a neat trick in cutting pvc pipe and laying the panel on them and placing each piece of pvc pipe under each individual joint line where glue squeezes out and I got to say it worked a charm, it also stops the pipe from staining your panel I’ll see tomorrow how the panel is and hopefully won’t have to level it too much
