I think people are asking for trouble waiting just 1 hour and applying any force. The joint won’t fail, but other problems may occur in finishing.

Made a dining table top once and didn’t leave it in the clamps long enough. Ended up with a tiny line that Telegraphed through the lacquer. Couldn’t see it in white sanding or stain, only on top coat. Ended up making a new top.

For thinner tops, no force for at least 3-4 hr. For thicker tops, I wait over night.
