Easy-to-handle Clamp Blocks
Sure, you could fiddle with odd scraps for clamp blocks, but this quick-and-easy clamp block jig will make glue-ups go more smoothly. Screwing hardboard tabs onto U-shaped clamp blocks, as shown at right, helps you hold the blocks in place while arranging clamps for a glue-up.
The tabs also provide a resting place for the clamp bars to keep them off the glue-up, while the blocks without the tabs distribute clamping pressure across a wider area than the opposing clamp jaws alone.
