Woodworker: Jerry Ernce
These hand-screw clamps are just two of the many that Ernce has made throughout the years. The clamp on the left is made of maple with padauk inlay and chrome handle ferrules; the clamp on the right is made of persimmon wood with rosewood inlay and brass handle ferrules. Both clamps have jaws that measure 1-1/8 in. square by 8 in. long with 4-in.-long handles and 3/4-in.-dia. birch threaded rods that allow the jaws to open 4 in. Each clamp has a wipe-on polyurethane finish.
