You only have to clamp it hard enough for the clamps to stay on because when we put this aside to dry, we're going to set it upright. As you can see, we have a lot of good squeeze out on the front, that's good. Again, wipe the glue. You will have a little bit of glue left under the clamp, but we can clean that up later. It?s going to be important to clean this glue well before it dries. Otherwise you're going to end up with globs. So you want to get your rag damp, but not wet?just another little squeeze. Ok, that looks good. We'll set this aside now and make sure you set it vertically so any glue that's going to run out of that crack runs straight down the crack and not across the chair. That makes it a lot easier to clean. So we'll put this aside for now and go on to the next step.
