    No problem people do it all the time. Use a good carpenters glue and glue properly and should never be a problem. Actually if you glue pieces 3 or 4" apiece you will prevent warping better. Also if you use quatersawn wood will help even more. If I am glueing up panel that will eventually be 1/4" I will make sure I start with about 3?8" and then sand down to 1/ 4" with my drum sander. Very handy tool in the scrollsaw business.

      I do it frequently, too. It makes life easier if you have good clamps that pull the wood squarely together. I've got some Besseys that seem to do the job quite nicely.

        Clamping

        I often glue up wood to make panels.
        Sometimes I will use masking tape on the back of the seam to hold the seam together while the glue dries.
        You can make a handy panel clamp.
        You may have to place something on the top of the wood to keep it from bowing. I use my 1 gallon glue jug. Not sure what I will use when I run out of glue.
