Gluing and Assembly Jigs and Helpers

 

Pipe-and-bar clamp blocks
Pipe-and-bar clamp blocks

These easy-to-make shop aids really simplify edge-gluing boards. The clamp blocks spread each clamp's pressure over a wider area and feature hardboard "outriggers" that keep the blocks in place while you position the clamps. They also prevent the clamp's pipe or bar from touching the panel's surface and creating a glue stain on your project.

The blocks without outriggers, called alignment blocks, bridge across the faces of mating boards, keeping their surfaces flush during assembly and as the glue dries. Cutouts prevent you from accidentally gluing the blocks to your workpieces.
