Pressure Clamps

Just a few pressure clamps for small to large jointing operations or veneering. Nothing special or eye candy about these. EZ to make. Had some two by four lumber which I split in half and run on the jointer to get a perfect flat side.
Drilled a few holes at different intervals to accommodate different size board widths, these will do up to thirty inches wide. The turn handles I made using some T-nuts.
Some leftover stain to fight off glue during clamping. I might cut shallow dado’s for glue escape or just use riser blocks.
These are a must in any shop that deals with real wood and jointing projects.

Gotta have these if you want nice flat panels.
I have a similar design that I plan to use.
Thanks for sharing.

Great idea and a very useful tool! Wax or packing tape on the faces that touch the squeeze out will prevent glue from sticking, no need to cut dadoes to avoid squeeze out.

THX for the comments.
Packing tape, YES. That’s what I’ve used in the past. Wax absolutely NOT. gets on the workpiece, leaves a residue that can get pushed in deep in the wood pores and messes up the stain job.
I’m thinking I will put a heavy coat of poly on these and let them dry and that should prevent any glue infringements ;-)

Pressure clamps or clamping cauls are a must for panel glue-ups but they do have their own draw backs.
