You mentioned rubber with yours...Is there a rubber backing? I don't have that on mine.
I was just the opposite, my diamonds were mounted on a block of walnut and I like to have never got them off, I didn't like them mounted.

Yup, cold weather did it here, too. They were so cheap I didn't worry about fixing it.
Silicone *might* work, but I've spilled 3-in-1 oil over mine, so it might not work for me.
Green stuff.....green stuff.....what green stuff are we talking about this time...

I might have got mine from Lee Valley ages ago, or maybe Midland over in Nanaimo. Either way, they fell apart the first time I used them.

Now if I use them, I put them on a workbench and run the tool over the top.

Almost done. There are a couple of narrow trims I need to make up to finish, but the appearance won't change much. Better in daylight for that.

The photo is without flash, which let the colour on the ceiling show from the light on the other side of the window.

This one is much more awkward to get at. Most of the bottom wood is on, none of the top.

It needs backing and a few fancy cuts, another daylight job.

Merci beaucoup...it's starting to come together now.

The missus wanted to PAINT some of the walls in the guest room...

...and without me saying a word, she has magically changed her mind. This is one of those times I'm only too happy that she has!

It seems that I can no longer find any excuse not to do the floor in there now.

Here's one you can use -

"I'll wait and do this floor the same time I do the rest of the floors upstairs."

or

"This floor can be a winter project. I better get other things done while it's still fairly nice outside."

Let me know if you need any more excuses. I have a million of 'em.

I came up with another one.

"How do you expect me to lay a floor when there is a bed in there?"

She'll say, "Take the bed apart and move it out of there".

One thing to remember when clamping up something with many layers of wood - once you have it clamped tightly...wait about 5 minutes and re-check the clamps. There's a good chance that some of them will tighten a little more.
It's also good to remove excess glue to avoid chips in planer blades etc after hardening. Also good to not wipe glue off with wet rag as this can smear glue into wood fibers and cause problems with stain not absorbing correctly in these areas. just a thought. timothy

Once again you are 100% correct!

Just let the glue set up until it is hard, and use a chisel or scraper to knock any of the small lumps off.

Using the damp rag makes an awful mess. You get a big area covered with a film of glue, and if it doesn't get planed off you're in trouble.

It won't take stain - or any other finish properly for that matter.

I use a brush for glue application and the two part glue I use mixes up quite thin. It's easy to spread and get a nice even layer. Usually not that much squeeze out - although when I made the workbench I went a bit overboard on the glue.

It's on wheels, so I think we can get away with putting the floor down on one side of the room and then shifting the bed over.

And I can't use the winter excuse, as that seems to be upon us today. We had big winds and loads of rain last night. The rain has quit, but the wind is showing us no mercy at all.
