Hi, I’m Jon on behalf of Expert Village. In
this video clip, we’ll be attaching all of our tops together. What I’ve done is I’ve
flipped over my desk onto those 2 tops that I just glued up. I’m going to get a kind of
an idea of where is everything is going to go. If we take a look at the corner we have
our good oak top on the top on the bottom, we have that scrap wood top in the middle,
then we have our birch top last here. Now we are going to put all these together with
glue and screws just like we did with our last 2 top pieces. This is going to make a
really strong top that shouldn’t bend once there is computer equipment on it. First off
I’m going to put a nice thick coat of glue over the entire bottom side of my scrap top.
Next I’m going to set my desk in place on top of it. You want to make sure that you
line that up so that all of the edges are perfectly flushed. Now when I screw these
tops together, I’m actually going to stand on top of it just to provide the necessary
downward pressure.
Again you just want to use plenty of screws. Once you finished screwing those tops together,
make sure you wipe off any excess glue with a damp cloth. Now when we flip that over,
we are going to have a nice thick top. When we press on it, it’s not going to bend so
we should be able to put lots of equipment on it without worrying about the tabletop
bending.

    It's better to add the glue in parallel lines, because the air bubbles will not be stuck between the wood panels, and it guarantees a strong massive wood panel. Adding the glue in circle style is bad, and not professional at all…

    Props for the vid! It finally helped me figure out something I was stuck with. I haven't started with Hyezmar's Woodworking Bible yet, but I googled and downloaded the book. Looks fun too!
