Adding some weight
After putting plastic over the glued stem, smooth boards are placed on top followed by some weight which will help evenly distribute pressure on the stem.

It doesn't matter much what you use for weight -- in this case, some boxes of bolts and hinges worked nicely.

Not a bad bit of work completed at the end of the second day of building. The next step will be to set up the forms on the build table.
