Make big sticks from lit­tle sticks

WOOD - - SKILL BUILDER -

For this project, make short scrap longer by glu­ing it end to end. Rip short, wide boards into nar­rower strips, and glue the strips to­gether to get at least 27" of length.

Clamp an end-to-end joint in a par­al­lel-jaw clamp and let the glue dry.

Joint an edge of the glue-up while it is still in the clamps. Ro­tate the piece and joint other faces as needed.

Glu­ing other scraps along­side the end-joined pieces on the jointed faces re­in­forces the joint. If you’re at­tach­ing other end-joined pieces, stag­ger the joint lines.
