There is a lot of pressure on the wood strips as the planking continues, and they do not want to stay against the forms.  It is important to keep pressing them against the forms as I glue them in place, and wait till the glue dries before letting them go.  Here, you can see the gaps this pressure creates as the planks want to warp.  I have to wedge a sharpened bamboo skewer against the bottom plank as I glue one end in, so I have room to apply the glue to the leading edge of the adjacent one.
