    Great video George. Just want to add to the solid surface info. Denatured alcohol is good for cleaning the dust off the surfaces, prior to gluing. All 5 manufacturers recommend that. The other thing is glue choice. If you have access to it in your area, acrylic resin, specifically designed for solid surface material, and available in most colors, will leave an invisible seam. This is a 2 part glue with about 10 minutes of working time. It s what large pieces, such as counters, are seamed with.

    Great video, woodworking newbie building a chest of drawers out of cherry, very informative and the homemade blocks used between the clamp and work piece on the ends of the boards are working like a charm. Top of chest/case looks amazing. Now on to the rest of the case! Thanks for the info.

    Please tell me the name of the little brush you use for spreading glue in dove-tail joints. Did you call it a “Flocks Brush”? Where do I find this type of brush?

      It’s called a flux brush, or simply a glue brush. You can get them inexpensively in bulk at stores like Rockler and Woodcraft.

        and Harbor Freight.

    Great video and, as always, so informative. Only a word of caution about using “painters blue tape” on wood. There are several types of blue tape. I would strongly advise the use of “low adhesion for delicate surfaces” otherwise you may end up lifting wood strips from your project when removing the tape.
