I’m building an 8’ laminated hardwood benchtop using pallet boards that are at most 5’. Bench top will be maybe 3” thick when complete. I’m gluing the faces. To make eight-footers out of my material I am making what is essentially an open mortice-tenon and then pegging/draw-boring the two or three or four pieces of each eight-foot length. No glue. Maybe the pegging is unnecessary but I like the look and joinery is my favorite aspect of this hobby.
