Re: Gluing up drawers - Ditto Hide Glue suggestion

David Charlesworth
Clamps are generally a very bad way of gluing up drawers. It is highly likely that the delicate structure will be distorted,by the weight or the pressure.

A large hammer is a good tool for dispensing delicate or more forceful "taps".

Too much tightness is not a good thing!
