For successful Assembly of furniture boards, and splicing of dimensional wood products is convenient to use a set of homemade clamps.
For their manufacture the author uses available materials: plywood cutting guides from a shaped tube, stud, extra long nut.
Speaking about the benefits of homemade clamps, first and foremost it is worth noting their low cost compared with the purchase. In addition, the use of these clamps allows you to achieve a large compression force of the workpieces.
For fixing smaller workpieces, you can use a simpler option: spring clips-clothespins. They can produce from the area, metal strips and springs.
Each clamp consists of several basic elements: the directing of potrubi, end the stop with the movable jaw and the second clamping sponge with a stopper.
The process of making homemade clamps
The first thing you will need to make moving parts with the stopper. First do the limit stop: it is sawn off two blocks of wood, and make grooves in them.
An elongated nut cut in half and insert the halves into the grooves. Additionally, drill holes in the nut halves and fix them with screws.
In the next phase, cuttable to size a piece of plywood, and assemble the pressure of the sponge.
After the manufacture of the end stops and top clamping jaw with screw. To guidelines from preferaby using epoxy adhesive to glue the studs.
A wooden block make the handle. Collect two clamp parts from plywood covered with mineral oil (you can just paint).
