Clamps and Clamping
My last project, an entertainment center, had a part that was difficult to clamp due to its depth.
You can buy more expensive ones, but pipe clamps are still my “go-to” clamp for large glue-ups.
With bar clamps running short on a cabinet job, I needed a good way to secure the face frames to the carcase.
I used a magazine project plan to make a set of bench risers for gluing parts together, such as laminating boards.
The smaller the part you drill on your drill press, the more important it is to clamp it for safety and accuracy.
While making several memorial flag cases for my nephew’s Marine Corps unit, I realized that gluing and clamping a 45° corner is not as easy as it seems.
