Subject:
Attaching table tops Question???

Barry Irby
I am wondering if I completely misunderstood "z" clips for attaching table tops, etc.

I have built many tables and used Z clips. What I do is use two pocket holes in each end near the center and pull the top down tight. On the sides I put a z clip about every foot or so. I thought the z clips would slide in and out of the slots.

I just watched a video from the Woodworking Guild of America that said not to attach the long edges at all and to put the z clips in the ends so they could slide left to right. Hmmm?

What say you?
