Wet Weekend for a Dry Run

It’s been blowing a hoolie all weekend with plenty of rain too, so it was a perfect opportunity to work under cover. The laminating jig is finally finished, and a dry run clamping the Oak laminates produced a reasonably satisfactory result, so no chance to use my, ‘the jig is up’ gag that I’ve been trying to shoe horn into this blog. πŸ™‚

Of course the whole process will be fraught with difficulty once there is glue sloshing about all over it and the jig may not just be ‘up’ it may be stratospheric! πŸ™‚

  1. Excellent jig, Jonnie! If you soak it with hot paraffin, beeswax, oil, petroleum jelly or any combination thereof, the glue will have a hard time sticking. Think ‘mold release’ Cheers!
