RiseNFall Posted March 10 Report Share Posted March 10 Hi All - I was looking online for somewhere I can ask a question to others more experienced than me, found this forum, thought I'd give it a shot. If this is posted in the wrong area, I apologize. I'm working on an end grain bar top project (Ambrosia Maple, Walnut & Padauk). I'm up to the point of finishing the last of the (16) panel glue ups (10.5"x23"x1.75") before running them all through the newly acquired drum sander. My question is, once these panels are ready to be glued together along the 23" sides and more-or-less "assemble" the top, is it advised to use dowels, biscuits or pocket screws (or a combination) along with the glue? Or would the glue by itself be sufficient? The bar top will have full framework under it other than a bit of a front overhang where people sit, so I'm not worried about excessive leverage being applied anywhere. If it matters, the top will also be finished off with that Famowood Bar Top Glaze Coat. I've searched a bit via Google and YouTube but haven't really found any good answers. If anybody here has some good input, I would certainly appreciate it. Couple of pictures below showing the mocked up bar layout and the glued up panels to help you visualize what I'm doing. Thank you! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
