Myths and fallacies are endless throughout woodworking. Woodworkers have to sift through so much to get the facts straight. In “Set The Record Straight”, we intend to wash away the untrue and deliver straight-up woodworking information. We begin with dispelling some of the myths about panel assembly. This process is something that all woodworkers need to do. It’s easy if you take the correct path and bypass the time-wasting extras that have become so engrained in everyday woodworking.
In today’s article (available to our subscribers) Glen D. Huey, in the first regularly appearing column at 360 WoodWorking, debunks panel-assembly myths such as using biscuits and dowels, restrictions of board width and alternating growth rings. He’s also included a short video demonstrating the proper procedure for easy panel assembly. Plus there’s a section that shows you how to mill boards almost 1-1/2 x the width of your jointer bed – that makes working with wider boards a snap.
