Wood Vise Grip Clamp

Why not build your own vise grip clamps? No reason I can think of. This one was built using 1/2 and 3/4 inch Baltic birch plywood. There is a free template of the parts you will need to cut out as well as full instructions on the build.

Tall Vise

Is your back sore from being bent over in the workshop? If so, you need to build a tall vise like this one to raise your work up and save your back. Bonus…if you are anything like me, is you will be able to see it more clearly as well.

Jig, Alignment - for Face Gluing

When gluing two or more pieces face to face (like making a set of thick legs for a project), they tend to slip out of alignment as you tighten the clamps. Here is one solution.

Clamp Blocks

When edge gluing boards, I use scrap blocks to distribute the clamping pressure and avoid marring the edges. But sometimes the blocks shift out of position or fall to the floor before I get the clamps tightened. To solve this problem, I made a number of U-shaped clamp blocks that slip over the edge and stay right where I put them.

Flip-up Pipe-Clamp Supports Downloadable Woodworking Plan PDF

Frustrated with pipe-clamp holders tipping over as he worked, Paul Amberg came up with some ingenious flip-up supports for his workbench. Upright and ready to go when you need them, folded down and out of the way when you do not, these pipe-clamp supports add versatility to any workbench.

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.

Jig, Picture Framing

Like many jigs this jig was born of frustration and the expense of the currently available frame clamps, and there are many expensive and useless clamps to choose from.

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.

Universal Clamp Rack Downloadable Woodworking Plan PDF

Because you can never have too many clamps, woodworkers tend to accumulate a lot of them. And because clamps come in a variety of sizes and shapes, storing them can be tricky. Here is a simple solution based on commonly available adjustable shelf hardware. We will show you how to build six outside supports and three center supports to make three clamp racks.

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.

Clamp Pads Magnetic

Whenever I use pipe clamps, I like to place a block of wood between the clamp and my workpiece. This clamping pad helps prevent damaging the surface of the wood. The problem is trying to hold the block in place as you tighten the clamp.

Clamp Rack, Space Saving

Build this simple clamp storage system (Photo at this link). With this system, the clamps hang on plywood holders that are mounted to a pegboard wall unit. To save space, sturdy support arms on the holders let you stack clamps face to face, several clamps deep. So even a small bracket can hold as many as four clamps.

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.

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...

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.

Moxon Vise

A moxon vise is very handy in the workshop as it clamps on to your workbench allowing you to cut joinery into the ends of your workpieces. The best part is when you finish with it you can remove it and store it out of the way.

Clamp, Small Parts

Occasionally, I will need to sand a small wooden part on a drum or disk sander. But holding onto small parts can be a challenge. A pair of pliers could do the job, but I wanted something with a softer grip. So I came up with the small parts clamp shown in the photo.
