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.

Clamp, Round Stock

The machinists vise in my shop gets a lot of use. Unfortunately, it is not very good at holding round stock. Its jaws tend to gouge wood and soft metals. To solve this problem, I made a set of auxiliary faces for my vise.

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.

My workbench does not have holes for bench dogs. And this makes it hard to hold some pieces in place whenever I need to work on them. To solve this problem, I made this holdfast clamp.

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 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.

Clamping Station for Panels

It seems that no matter how many clamps I own, it is never enough when it comes time to glue up a number of solid-wood panels. I have toyed with the idea of investing in more clamps, but decided I could come up with something that would work just as well and cost a lot less. My solution is a simple clamping station.

Pipe Clamp Glue-up Rack

My shop has no room for an auxiliary table for glue-ups. And I do not like the mess and distraction of having to do these glue-ups on my workbench. So to solve this problem I use a wall system that holds my pipe clamps whenever I need to do assembly and gluing tasks. This makes for efficient use of my space.

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.

Pipe Clamp Stand

The stands, shown in the photo, give the clamps a very stable footing, as well as creating extra clearance for the handle. Thus I was able to put an end to the handle cranking clearance and stability problems by making some stands for my pipe clamps.

Pipe Clamp Supports

When gluing up panels, I like to remove the glue squeeze-out before it sets. But pipe clamps laid flat on my assembly bench left me no room to clean the underside of the joints. So I found a way to take my panel-making to a higher level.
