How to Select Woodworking Clamps for Your Home Workshop
posted on by
Bar and C woodworking clamps Old classic bar and C-clamps are all most woodworkers will ever need in their workshop.

I’m well aware of the truism that you can’t be too rich, too thin or have too many clamps. But just because so many designs are available doesn’t mean that you have to own multiples of every type. Limiting yourself to a narrow range ensures familiarity with how best to use the clamp in a variety of settings and simplifies your storage system. Clamps represent a major investment, so it’s prudent to choose thoughtfully based on the kind of woodworking you plan to do. If you are making furniture, for instance, some form of bar or pipe clamp is essential, as is one of the fast-acting types.
