Just curious what technique I would need to clamp down an inlay in the middle of a large panel.
What I have is a 40” x 20” solid 1” thick red oak bench top. I want to inlay a compass rose into the middle of it, as well as some banding around the outer edge. The banding is easy because I can use regular clamps to hold it down. The compass rose is in the middle of the panel and I have never heard of clamps with 20” deep throats. What technique or tool would I need (besides a really heavy rock!) to hold the inlay in place while it dries?
