Quick Poll

While there are many different adhesives out there, yellow glue seems to be the standard for most woodworkers. It’s strong, durable and easy to use.

And, when it comes to yellow glue glue ups, proper clamp pressure and clamping duration are key to making a great glue joint.  So, this week’s question – just how long do you leave your yellow glue glue ups in the clamps?

  1. I feel like this is something that should actually be put to the test. Surely there is a point where it is no longer relevant if the clamp is on there or not.

  2. Usually, one hour is all I clamp for but for super-critical glue-ups, I leave clamps on overnight. I recently did some bent laminations using one form and the first three spent a couple hours on the form while the last stayed overnight. The last held the curve noticeably better.
