Using yellow wood glue and bar clamps spaced 12 inches apart, Moser turns three boards into
one. After about 3 hours, the piece is unclamped and the hardened lines of squeezed-out glue are scraped off by hand. The top is then run through the abrasive planer’s 60-grit belt to eliminate any glue residue. It’s the first of many sandings that every piece of wood receives.
