Edge Gluing is a technique used widely to create larger wood panels for projects ranging from cutting boards to tabletops. In this class our instructor will demonstrate how to prepare joints for edge gluing using a variety of shop tools (including the jointer, router, planer and table saw) and introduce participants to sprung, butt, spline, biscuit and matched wood joints. Participants will learn how to select and use clamps, dry fit, properly apply glue, remove and clean-up excess adhesive, and troubleshoot misalignment.

The Minnesota Tool Library is a membership based non profit which offers members access to tools, workshop space, and community. By sharing access to tools, no one needs to own costly tools for occasional use. With MTL, we all have low-cost access to the tools we need, when we need them.
Moreover, we engage the community to expand its collective skill set, helping each other to learn which tools to use for meaningful projects and connect with each other while doing it.
Classes are vital to MTL’s mission. They open the doors to all to learn about different tools, how to handle them and empower community members to create projects of their own.
