Woodworker’s Guide to Clamps

Get a grip without spending a bundle.


You can never have too many, but you have to start somewhere. Start here.

Woodworker­s need clamps for an endless variety of tasks: securing project parts to the bench as they work on them, serving as a third hand, coaxing reluctant parts together, holding assemblies in place during a dry-fit and while glue dries…well, again, the list is endless.

That’s why you find such a large variety of clamp styles and sizes available. Don’t fret; you don’t need them all (yet). Start with our recommenda­tions for building up an initial clamp collection. You’ll discover which ones you use most often, and which types you wish you had, so you can expand your selections accordingl­y.
