Simple Scarf Joint Clamping

Recommended Posts

Chris: you tape up your tops and backs, that works (and I'll be using that method in future), but you really do need to try the setch method for scarfs. Seriously, 3 bits of tape, 2 clamps, bit of glue, and you're done in seconds, and it's dead on accurate in my experience. I used to do it your way, won't go back to it.

Setch, go watch my video in the Scarf Joints 101 pinned thread that this thread gave birth to. The neck is clamped to my table for max 5 minutes. MAX. Also, I worked from squared up pieces... so no problem there. And I do VERY few laminate necks. I think they look hideous on a singlecut with the rear neck access carves I like doing... so I only will ever use them on singlecuts, which I make significantly less of.
