Align laminations with a miter-splining jig
I recently needed to laminate small pieces of 3⁄4 " stock to create turning blanks for ball feet. Keeping the glued pieces from sliding out of alignment as I applied clamping pressure proved a challenge, of course. Then, I hit upon the idea of using my shop-made miter-splining jig as a third hand during the glue-up. The jig made the process fast and effective, with perfectly aligned laminations.
