To avoid marring your finely sanded stock, each clamp surface needs a clamp pad (about $5 a pair in catalogs). Hardwood clamp blocks make an adequate substitute, but you may have trouble juggling them during the glue-up process.

If you like this project, please check out the hundreds of shop-proven paper and downloadable woodworking project plans in the WOOD Store.
