When I got all these clamps, never thought I’d use them all at once. Ran out on this glue up.

Anyone got pics of ridiculous glue ups?

There’s something really satisfying about a good clamp job.

A couple…not really ridiculous in this world.

Dont’cha hate it when you only have a hundred clamps and you have to do the job in two gluing sessions because you just don’t have enought to do it all at once?

Ha, that’s right… thing is I spend money on tools and wood to make something I could buy. And when I do it’s only the satisfaction that I made it myself that pays. My hobby is very, very expensive if I look at it that way. Then again I don’t do it as a business.

The only thing you can possibly have more of than clamps is $1,000,000sss (plural)...

Truer words were only stated in my first sentence.

It’s great to hear someone else admit that they probably spend a lot more to fabricate something they could buy much cheaper… if not for that elusive satisfaction, we’d all be certified.
