Just wanted to post some pics of me laminating the top for my walnut coffee table. I edge glued four boards together and used some homemade cauls I made with my jointer to keep them aligned. Needless to say, I need more clamps :-/

I was pretty happy to get it all done before this cold spell hit last night (~21 degrees here, lowest temp so far this winter in East Texas). I also am laminating some boards to make legs and I figured I’d post a pic of one of those as well. Enjoy.

Never enough clamps
Looking forward to seeing the finished piece.

I’m certain you find the cauls very useful. Do you recall what degree of camber you used or just took a few thou off from center out? Nice glue up.

Showing off I see, very nice. You got a nice look with the grain.

Looking good. Walnut is one of my favorite woods.
