Your dimensions don't make sense to me. Could you re-phrase them please?

A good use of a couple of long cauls can apply pressure with minimal clamps.

If you do not want to make cauls a 2ft spacing should work if you are short of clamps.

You can always move the clamps 12in to left or right after e.g., 20 minutes if you see any gaps or the squeeze out does not look to be consistent.

I read this to be 6 pieces being glued together, each one 4in x 2in x 9ft long.

Thanks Dave, that makes sense.

If all mating edges are machined well, you might get by with every 24". I would alternate top to bottom every 12"

Sorry new to this I'm making a work bench the top is 4 inches thick 9 feet wide 4 feet deep 34 inch height I'm using southern yellow pine 2x12 10 foot long I've rip and cut most of them the legs are 5 inches wide x 4 inch thick and the side rails will be 5x4 the front and, back rail will be flush with the edge of the bench so I can have a sliding dead man not sure about the over hang to the left or right of the legs was going to put the legs 5feet apart seems kinda small for a sliding deadman it will be mortis and tenon and draw board together once I start glue up I'll post pics of my day to day progress I have bar clamps and c clamps that is about it wonder how much this thing is going to weigh !:)

Sounds like a solid bench!

The number of clamps needed will depend on how many pieces you are gluing up at one time. It will get very heavy!

Large glue ups are not easy... Do a dry run.

I was hoping to glue up two 6 in blocks a day so that would be 4 or 5 days as they dry I can drees them up and then glue them up so roughly 5 or 6 days total for glue up. I guess

I'm not sure what you are trying to do on the bench but if you made the top 2" thick that would probably suffice and would keep the weight down some. If I did the math properly, 4' of 4" thick 2*4s would be 32 boards total.

Good luck however you do it. Enjoy the process and the final result.

The bench will be a combo out feed bench for the table saw a wood working bench @ assembly bench I have plenty of room and only want to build 1 bench I want to learn all typs of wood working I was going to make it 3 in thick yet a book I read by Charles Schwartz on workbench design his is 5 in thick so I thought I would split the diff. And make I 4 in thick

I envy your space in the shop. I work out of a one car garage that has a lot of stuff in it. The bench I built does the same as you are wanting to do - outfeed, assembly, workbench. The top is flat. It overhangs the frame by 2 inches all the way around so I can clamp stuff.

Here is a link to my bench.
Hope this helps.
Mike

If its big enough it should i want to add a down draft table with the space to the right of the table saw like a big rectangle and run the dust collection system in one run a ton of ? About that want to do it right the first time so I don't. Have to fix it Again not sure what system to use most of my tools are jet ? What brands are better for the dollar I look for in a tool is smoothing in a tool that I can buy and it will work and run for shifts 8 to 10 hours long if I buy a tool I would like it to be the last one I buy so any suggestions is greatly appreciated

I would not hijack your own thread about gluing.

I would make a new posts in the Dust Collection forum.

You need to provide guidance. Dust collector - bag or cannister, or cyclone. Do you have 220V available or need to use 110V, which impacts the HP of motor you can run.

Lots of threads worth reviewing in the Dust Collection forum.
