Improved Bar Clamps

Yesterday I tackled a project I have meant to do for a couple of years. Glueing small pieces of wood to my clamps, I now have made glue ups a little easier. Every time I have a big glue up with multiple clamps and many pieces of wood used to protect the project surface I think how great it would be to have the wood attached. A stumbled across a piece of quarter inch plywood when cleaning up and before I forgot again, cut pieces to size and glued them to the clamps.

    Excellent plan, I did that many years ago after finding I didn’t have enough hands to clamp and put in a scrap piece to protect the wood. Started out attaching them with carpet tape, then hot glue, and finally made it permanent by drilling holes through the clamp heads and screwing them on for good!
