Answer:  IN LOCKSTEP

(A very smart pun!  I really liked it.  I’m no carpenter, but I never knew you used glue in building stairs.  I would have thought nails, or screws, or some kind of brackets.  I’ll defer to the guys here.

We’ve seen all of today’s clue words before.  One of the jumbles appears to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “talsn”, “hakik” and “bhpauc” in previous Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a tenacious ten letter jumble.  Certainly not obvious.  Even though it could’ve been ON or TO, my first choice was IN.  This left me with SLKCPOET, and I quickly saw LOCKSTEP.

Fine cartoon of the two carpenters.  Is the glue thing just the first step . . . so to speak?  Do they follow up with other fasteners?  It just doesn’t seem permanent enough to me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We must have pie.  Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.”   —   David Mamet

(Gotta respect a man with a healthy sweet tooth!  Our household is probably bigger on cakes, cookies, brownies and ice cream, but I do love me a nice slice of pie.  Pretty much all of them too.  I might be wrong, but it looks like this might be our first David Mamet quote at the Cryptoquote.  So, we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
