Personally, I would recommend to go with the 3/4” size and don’t even bother with the 1/2” variety. The 3/4” will not flex as much as 1/2” pipe. As for lengths, for my purposes, a pair of 3’ and a pair of 5’ length clamps will cover 99 percent of all cabinet projects. For shorter applications, I prefer the F-style bar clamps and the Irwin quick clamps. For larger projects, you may want some longer, but that combination will cover a lot of applications.
