I’ve made these sorts of clamps before (often called a Klemmsia clamp after
the well-known German maker). This laminated design is an improvement
over my clamps however, which were prone to cracking due to:

1. poor material choice (ash – which splits well)
2. non-laminated construction

I own a bunch of the Klemmsia ones but I’m tired of buying them so I may
make some more. Thanks.
