Too Many Clamps?

Cliche you think. If you have done any woodworking or even know a woodworker you have no doubt heard the line "you can never have too many clamps." There is a good reason for this. The photo above shows two 8-foot long glue-ups for turning blanks. Thirty-two clamps in use. If I didn't have the clamps I would have to glue over two days, losing valuable time. Since I make a living at this, that's an important consideration. So, stock up!

  1. Well, I can't find a way to post a photo of my clamp collection. Just as well, I s'pose. But, maybe, just maybe, I should take some small measure of solace in the thrifty use of those 6 bar clamps that comprise my meager accumulation. I guess I'm the guy that spends four days just making the blanks. If you ever do run out, I'd be happy to loan them to you. But, I'll be needing them back.
