Glue Up


Thinking of taking landing tread and joining it to 1x stock.

I don't have an arsenal of clamps but what do you think about biscuits with pocket screws in between the hold it?

Re: Glue Up


How about a stair tread? Is is it going to be stained or painted?

I can get full 12" wide treads with bullnose on it. Not sure if wood species matters or not.

If you face the material no need for pocket screws even.

Face a few boards, domino and clamp that bitch and be done with it.

Re: Glue Up


A roll of stretch tape makes for great clamping. You’ll be surprised how tight you can pull a joint with stretch tape.

Re: Glue Up


Don't own a domino. Could certainly dowel. I have several pony clamps but probably not enough.

Re: Glue Up


So we all agree?

Biscuits and pocket screws and glue will do the trick.

Re: Glue Up


If you have the Kreg clamp then just glue and screws. If not you might need the biscuits for alignment.

I've been in hurry up situations before, where I would pocket screw the entire length of the glue up & would then use a couple clamps to hold the joint closed & aligned as I put in the pocket screws. Clamp, screw, move clamps repeat the entire length of the glue up. Don't need but a couple clamps with this method & ya don't need to use biscuits for alignment.
