I like the hold-down clamps that Incra makes, but I thought I could make them for less than the $10 they’re selling for. Like the Incra design, these have a swivel so that the bolt can remain vertical while the clamp body tilts to adjust for the height of whatever you’re clamping. The body is poplar, and the swivel is oak dowel. I even coated the ends in Plasti-Dip for extra grip and to reduce marring of the workpiece.
Here is a link to a PDF template of the body. The rest of it is pretty straight-forward.
