I saw a hint on how to clamp thin stock when gluing that I thought was
interesting. I'll try to explain in words, and a lousy picture.

Put a row of nails into a piece of scrap.
Place the outside edge of the thin stock against the row of nails.
Place the edges to be glued together and lift the center enough to
slip a pencil or length of dowel under 'seam'.
Put another row of nails along the other outside edge. It should look
something like this:

                                /\
                              |/ O \|
                             ---------      

Put the glue on the edges.
Pull out the pencil and press the center down.
Place a piece of wax paper over the seam and place a weight on the thin stock
to hold it down.


The main idea here is that the width between the rows of nails will be
slightly smaller than the width of the stock to be glued, and that will
cause just enough pressure to hold the seam together while the glue dries.
I've never tried it, but the magazine said it worked!
