Do not glue while tired

I learned a new lesson.  Do not glue wood while tired.  I figured that I would get a step up on the hall tree build and glue some boards together tonight.  I wasn't thinking and didn't clamp the wood down to the bench before I drilled in the pocket holes and the wood drifted.  I hate it when that happens.  The good news is that the boards I glued together go behind the cubbys and nobody will ever really see them.  I'm hoping that I can just sand the hell out of them and even them up.  Once again, this is the main reason I am using cheap wood.  So I can make mistakes like this.

  1. This has happened to me as well. Next time try to handplane it to make it even, might cut out the sanding as well.

  2. Thanks for the advice. I currently do not own a handplane but it is on the list of tools I want to get.
