Joining Boards Together For Door Panel
I'm into wood carving and making doors. To make a large panel for a exterior, interior house door? Joining boards together, any pointers of how wide I have the boards I glue up? Would the way to go be using spline joints to glue the boards together? Alternating grain pattern on the end of each board to reduce any tendency to cup, does this also apply to to quarter sawn timber? Use the pipe clamps, one head on one side, then the next on the opposite to even out any stresses in the wood and further reduce tendency to cup? Clamping cauls?
Any advice much appreciated.
