Spring Joints still a good idea and with how many boards?
While listening to Gary’s podcast he frequently talks about spring joints. Heading to YouTube I see little discussion on how to execute this joint from any recent presenters.
Local wood shop store expressed concern that a spring joint would starve the ends of the joint of glue and also stated that today’s advance glue types greatly reduce the risk of boards parting at the ends, as in nearly never.
I am assuming spring joints are used when gluing only two boards?
Are spring joints a good practice with longer boards as there would be little spring in a shorter board?
As you can plainly see I fit into the newer wood worker category.
