Thanks Derek, now the dog can see the rabbit!. Michael, Welcome, I thnk it's normally an epoxy type glue with radio frequency setting facilities to allow a continuous process to be used to ensure that not a scrap of material is wasted. The header joints you have indicated are normally a multi finger joint to solve the problem of end grain to end grain gluing. You see this method used on work tops and other large slabs of timber where it must be more stable than large pieces of timber, and, as I said nothing goes to waste. It's not a process that ordinary woodworkers like me carry out since the automated gear to do the work must be very expensive.

I've seen slabs of pine made in this way being sold by timber merchants and DIY outlets.
