Extend the Length of Your Woodworking Clamps
Make your woodworking clamps longer with this simple jig and save a bundle of money in the process
If there’s one thing woodworkers need a lot of, it’s wood clamps. Trouble is, clamps are expensive and from time-to-time, a furniture maker gets to the point of a dry-fit, only to discover that the clamps available aren’t quite long enough.
When faced with wood clamps that were too short for a tabletop glue-up, Fine Woodworking reader Andy Olerud decided to create a jig that would extend the reach of his clamps. In this Mastered in a Minute video tip, Fine Woodworking senior web producer Ed Pirnik shows you how it’s done.
