I'm a woodworker with many years of part time woodworking experience along with a number of other trades.
My father was a cabinetmaker his whole life and I thats what got me started in this field although woodworking was not my profession.
I generally don't like to copy anyone else's projects and prefer to design my own.
I've developed a new woodworking tool that I believe many woodworkers will find useful.
The new tool along with YouTube videos can be found on my website:

I’ve developed a Universal Clamping Block that I believe many woodworkers will find useful in their shop.

It allows the user to clamp a variety of woodworking joints with clamps they probably already have in their shop or will be readily able to acquire without the need to purchase a variety of specialized clamps that can be difficult to find and can sometimes be relatively expensive.

Information and illustrations on the wide range of applications of the blocks along with links to YouTube videos demonstrating their use is available on my web site:

Please check it out.

Welcome Dave. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.

Thanks for all the comments.

A comment concerning the possible damage to the wood from the metal probably needs some clarification.

If you view the YouTube videos you’ll see that the neoprene pads supplied with the blocks can be attached to either side of the blocks to prevent ripples in the wood and reduce slippage. The pads are taped to the blocks or not depending on your preference. Any ripples on the wood caused by bare blocks can be removed by steaming them out with an iron and a wet cloth.

Please watch the videos for a demonstration. If you visit the web site you’ll find links to the videos.

Concerning the price of the blocks, when you consider the ruggedness and wide range of applications for the blocks and that they may replace the need to acquire specialized clamps the price may not seem out of line.

Concerns over glue sticking to the pads this can be reduced by either covering them with masking tape and removing the tape as needed. Another method to reduce glue sticking to the pads is to spray the pads with a silicon spray lubricant. Let the lubricant dry before use. This will make removing any glue on the pads much easier and should not have any material effect on the wood which you’ll probably sand before finishing anyway.

I’ve posted a new video demonstrating the use of Blokkz’ Universal Clamping Blocks for edge trim clamping which some might find interesting. There is also a video of frame clamping using the blocks.

Anyway, take a look.

You can access the videos easily through my web site.
