I agree with Jack, cauls are not necessary. The key to a panel glue up is flat boards and perfect joints.

My technique is to gradually increase clamp pressure, and bring seams into alignment with a rubber mallet. I put clamps on the seams at each end.

If I’m dealing with some minor bows I know I can clamp out, I’ll use biscuits.

That said, if you’re using cauls, I would put them eveyr 12”.
