Over this past year I found that I was short two 24 inch clamps on several projects. I do have 36 inch and 48 inch bar clamps in my arsenal, but the extra length tends to get in the way when not needed. Once between projects I decided that since I had the materials I needed, I should just build two more clamps. I tried to make them with the most basic tools that I could. The only electric tools that I used was the table saw to rip them to width and an electric drill.
These are made from 1×2 pine cut-offs. That is, the bar measures .75 inches x 1.5 inches. Each clamp requires a board 48 inches long. They are finished with boiled linseed oil.
