I posted these homeade clamps while ago but I couldn’t help but post them again since there is alot more members here on LJ’s. I got the idea from a video youtube. These things are simple to make and work like a charm. I’m laminating a piece of lacewood between some pecan and able to get pressure across the whole length of my piece. I started off using just regular clamps and I seemed to be struggling to keep everything flat and then I remembered these wedge clamps. When I used it for the first time, I just shook my head and smiled.

These are interesting to see as individual clamps. I have been contemplating making something like these to assemble boxes where I would have two sets at right angles to each other. I’m still thinking how to keep it flexible though.
