How to make 2x material out of two 1x's

I'm new to woodworking and am working on starting my first table. I would like to have a plank table top, comprised of about 4 2x8's joined together on the edges. I know I have to glue and clamp these together to forn the top.

How do I join two pieces of 1x8 to form a 2x8? Do I simply glue and clamp? Please detail this out for me so I can understand, or is there a link to some info on this?

ANY help is greatly appreciated.

If you scroll to the bottom of the screen, there's also a "Wood Working Forum" siser site. I'm sure there's some member / knowledge crossover, but I'm SURE someone over there would know!
