I think some glues recommend 24 hrs.

That being said, at high school the teacher glued 2 blocks together, side by side. Clamped it for an hour, out it in the bench vise. Wacked it with a hammer and it split, just off centre, above the glue line.

My mallet I glued and clamped for maybe an hour before I put it in the lathe at 3000 rpm.

If. You had enough clamps to do a couple of glue ups at a time I would go say an hour then glue to glue ups together and clamp over night.

What is that other thing you having besides the beer, can't read what it is while making a reply

All the backpackers seem to get one. I think you can get 2 yrs fairly easy and then you try for permanent residency if that is the way you want to go. Of course you can apply for residency straight up, just a different set of requirements.

1st round of glue up done looks great so far one of the glue ups is defiantly heavier should I put it in the middle of the bench as a back bone so to speak?

Looking good. How does the other side of the boards on the right look? The set on the left looks a little cleaner.
