Topic tags/keywords: jig glue rack clamping clamp tip trick joining

I have a bunch of bar clamps and some free space on a wall and I want to make a designated spot for glue ups. Anyone have or seen anything like this?

Please share if you do. Thank you very much in advance.

Not sure I understand what your trying to say. Are you saying you have room on a wall for a bench to do glue ups?.
If that’s the case, it would be desirable to access a glue up table from both sides. Small items could be done but if you need to use longer clamps your going to have a problem.

I’ve seen an article about a wall-mounted panel clamping station. A net search for wall mounted panel press turns up: Woodworkers Journal, 2009.

Might have to subscribe.

If you come up with something, please post it. I’ve been wanting to do something similar myself. I’d be interested in a design that allowed for clamping cauls across the top of the glue-up.

This is a very old edition of American Woodworker magazine. Found it on Google books. Go to page 96.
