If you take care to do this before hand I find that glue-ups go far better and with no panic.
The glue used again was Titebond 2 Dark. All the tenons were coated with glue and the mortises were coated too. I also like to put a thin layer of glue on the shoulder faces and the corresponding long grain around the mortise.
The parts were all assembled and placed into parallel clamps. The whole assembly was then turned onto its feet, my new flat low assembly table being pressed into service. The parts are then all checked for squareness (especially the drawer aperture) and checked across corners. The glue-up is left to setup overnight.
|5 clamps work well on this project|
The side sub-assemblies had already been glued up
in a previous procedure
|The low assembly table brings the project to|
the ideal level
