When gluing wood together a rub joint can be used to ensure a strong joint when clamping is not an option. George Vondriska teaches you how to create a rub joint that you can use on your woodworking projects. By jointing the edges of both pieces, painting wood glue onto one edge and then applying slight pressure to rub the pieces together, you can create an edge-to-edge joint that is strong enough to hold even under severe force.
