I just had the time to watch the first linked video, this is beautiful! Absolutely perfect , and exactly what I needed – thanks AlaskaGuy, and everyone for that matter.

...with the glue up I used (face referenced my dining table for flatness) I could not get to the glue on the face as it dried to scrape ahead of time. Live and learn I suppose.

Yeh, that is the nature of the beast. I would imagine that you had some sort of plastic down to protect the table and the squeeze out got spread out pretty thin between the piece and the plastic.

First, a “great idea” commendation for using your dining room table as an assembly table. Second, a “most understanding spouse” commendation (if you are married) to whoever actually allowed you to do this. My wife is very understanding and supportive, but trust me, there ain’t no glue-ups happening on our dining room table!

The good news is that the squeeze out looks pretty limited and thin. I have found that if I get everything in place, lightly draw up the clamps, then tighten up a bit on the cauls before the final clamping pressure is applied most of the squeeze out is directed upwards (at least it seems that way). I do tend to use more cauls on a piece that size.
