Small Clamping Table
I’ve found that gluing and clamping small assemblies requires a slightly different approach. Sawhorses or a large open benchtop just aren’t suited to the task. So I came up with a worksurface that matches the small scale of the project.
As you can see from the photo and the drawing, the small, t-shaped clamping table I put together is about as simple as can be — two pieces of ¾″ plywood joined by a dado. The idea is that the upright can be clamped in the tail or face vise of your workbench to provide a small, but solid, platform on which to work. You have easy access for your clamps, and everthing is at a comfortable height. So I guess the lesson here is, think small.
Have a great weekend,
