In this video I want to show you how to make a cheap and effective wooden clamp. I have used wood chips and other materials that I already had in my workshop.

As at first sight it may seem weak, this clamp has plenty of clamping pressure.

It has a Norwegian style, as these type of clamping tool was traditionally used for Norwegian boat construction.

The video is a bit too artsy fartsy for my taste but the clamp is interesting. I’ve seen these somewhere before in a sketch or drawing, but I can’t remember where.
