Clamp, Corner

Whenever I am assembling mitered frames, I have a difficult time holding the frame pieces in position while gluing or installing fasteners. But instead of buying an expensive corner clamp, I made my own using a couple of pipe clamps, as shown in the photo.

Clamp Blocks for Aligning Miters

A band clamp does a great job of applying even pressure when gluing up boxes and other square projects. But if the project has mitered corners like a picture frame, then a band clamp has problems.

Clamping Table, Small

I have found that gluing and clamping small assemblies requires a slightly different approach. Sawhorses or a large open benchtop just are not suited to the task. So I came up with a work surface that matches the small scale of the project.

Bench Vise, Auxiliary

One of the things I like best about woodworkers is that we are always thinking. For example, if we do not have a tool or a jig that we need to do something, we make it ourselves, or come up with a work around. Here is an example...

Clamp Holder, Overhead

I found that I had accumulated so many small clamps that storing them was becoming a problem. So I resolved to come up with a storage system that would keep my numerous bar clamps and spring clamps out of the way but still within easy reach. It turned out that the perfect spot was right over my head.

Every once in awhile when trying to clamp a workpiece to my bench, the reach of the clamps jaws comes up a little short. So I call on a simple clamping extension to solve the problem.

Clamp, Miter Joint Corner

Gluing a miter joint is a challenge . There just is not an easy way to clamp it. So I came up with a shop-built corner clamp that uses wedges to push (or press) the mitered pieces in place.

Bench Holdfast

It seems to me that bench holdfasts are a lot less common these days than they used to be. That is too bad -- they are really a great way to secure boards to a workbench. If your bench has holes for bench dogs, you can build one for yourself. All you need is a common bar clamp, a scrap piece of bar stock, and a few minutes.

Toggle Bolt Hold-Downs

My portable workbench gets pressed into service as a stand for several of my benchtop tools. But instead of breaking out the clamps every time I want to attach a tool to the workbench, I came up with a shop-made hold-down. It is faster and easier to use than clamps, and it can be made from a few pieces of commonly available hardware and a wood dowel.

Clamp Holder, Clip On Lamp

I like the extra light that a clip-on lamp gives when I work. The problem is there never seems to be a convenient place to attach one.

Clamping Station (PDF)

To meet clamping challenges head-on, I built this wall-mounted clamping station. It combines the glue-up area, clamps, and drying area into a single location. So there is no need to worry about cleaning off a workbench when it comes time to glue up a panel. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra.

Light clamp puts hose in its place

Although many power tools now include dust-collection ports, removing debris while boring on a drill press remains a challenge. Here is a simple rig that allows you to position a vacuum hose near the bit, yet easily reposition it when necessary.

Clamp Rack Wall Mounted

Create a wall-mounted home for all your workshop essentials. Although the size and spacing of notches for your clamps will vary from mine, the rack must be canted toward the back by 3 degrees to keep the clamps securely in place.

Clamp and Beam Veneer Press

If you do not have a dedicated veneer press, you can still get the job done with common clamps, cauls, and wooden beams, as long as you use enough clamps for adequate pressure and distribute the clamping pressure as evenly as possible.

Clamp, Quick Change

Switching the flexible hose on a portable dust collector from one tool to another is a nuisance. I am always fiddling with a screwdriver, loosening and tightening the hose clamp that holds it in place. To speed things up, I made my own hose clamp from a clothes hanger and a scrap of wood. This clamp fits around the hose and then snaps tight like the wire clip on an old-fashioned canning jar.
