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.

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.

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.

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.

Jig, Drill Press

The work tables on most drill presses are designed for working with metal. For working with wood, we need a larger work surface and a more versatile way to clamp the work piece. This table, by use of T-Track , hold down clamps, and toggle clamps permits accurate clamping and positioning of the work piece.

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.

Jig, Clamping - for Panel Door

When I decided to build a set of kitchen cabinets, I had to make and assemble about three dozen raised panel doors. Instead of using pipe or bar clamps for this task, I came up with my own clamping jig.

This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a clamp storage rack. You will need the SketchUp software to download this drawing and its freely available online. We do not provide support for this software. Not all drawings have the measurements displayed but you can use the measurement tool in SketchUp to easily and accurately determine the dimensions of each lumber part. Most drawings do not have instructions, its assumed you can build it based on the completed drawing provided.

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...

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 Table, Knock Down

Trying to glue up large panels or frames on a small workbench can be difficult. I often found myself working in the middle of the floor. So, I built this simple knock-down clamping table to make the job a little easier.

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 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 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.

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.

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.
