To make a wooden box, a trimmer or a shelf, you need fairly large wooden surfaces. It is better to assemble two boards, so that the room is more solid and stable. The wood is working and a large board will warp more than two small assemblies! The laminator will give a perfect job.

Step 1 - I gather my equipment

To assemble two wooden planks, I need two planed planks, a laminator, special strips and vinyl wood glue.


Step 2 - I prepare my first board

I fix the first board to the workbench using a clamp properly adjusted at each end, so that it does not move.

Step 3 - I trace the anchor points

With the help of a ruler, I measure regular intervals where the mortises that will receive the slats will be positioned. I draw benchmarks in pencil, for each interval. I do the same with the second board, taking care to check that the mortises will be perfectly opposite.

Step 4 - I pierce the mortises

With the lamellar, I pierce the mortises on the edge of the board which will receive the lamellas. I first checked the attachment of my board to the workbench so that it does not move during the operation. Then, I repeat the same operation with the second board.

Step 5 - I glue the boards

I prepare the gluing of the strips by applying glue with a brush, on the edge of the board, at the level of each mortise. I take a brush with a pointed tip in order to bring the glue inside the notch.

Step 6 - I lay the slats

After having coated the strip of glue with the brush, I lay it lengthwise in the mortise. I again glue the side of the protruding strip.

Step 7 - I lay the second board

I have the second plank on the mortise side on the edge of the first plank, so as to fit the slats inside the second plank. I press to perfectly join the two boards. If necessary, I tap lightly with a wooden mallet on the top board to bring it down.

Step 8 - I install clamps

I use clamps to keep the two boards joined while the glue sets. With quick glue, they should be left for at least half an hour. I have two cleats on each side to receive the clamps and avoid making a mark on the boards. If the glue overflows a little, I wipe it quickly before it dries.

Step 9 - I admire the result

I now have an assembled piece that makes me a pretty board to make the object I needed. The joint is barely visible and my board has gained strength.
