Bar clamp extensions

Too many times I've reached for a one-handed bar clamp/spreader only to find that it's too short to do the job at hand. To solve the problem, I created a hardwood "splice," as shown, to connect the clamps end-to-end. (You have to use the reversible spreader-type clamp so you can remove the "fixed" jaw.)
