Great idea!! now I know what I’m going to do with my extra Oak … Thanks for posting this.
The only thing I would change is the handle maybe make it of wood and elongate it to get more torque.

As stated, please give us a report on how well they work. I will have to give them a try with some of my scrap also.

Good job, As spendy as clamps are, I’ve always wondered why more guys don’t make them??
