Tame tricky clamp-ups
Beat the bulk
Large assemblies, such as casework and cabinetry, require loads of clamps, and big ones at that. To apply pressure to areas beyond the reach of the clamp's jaws, extend their reach with cauls (right), or use a heavy object instead (center right). If you don't have enough clamps to complete a glue-up, try making just a few clamps do the same job (below right).
