Make Your Own Bar Clamps – Heavy Duty!

Old Open Screw Clamp

The bar clamp. You can’t have enough of them in the shop. The one to the left is your typical bar clamp, but did you know that you can make your own out of wood?

Now, these bar clamps would be so expensive if you purchased them that I have found that you can make yourself. There are so many things that you can build for yourself in your shop, and clamps like these aren’t to be left out. What makes tools that you design and build for yourself great is the customization work can be done in order to fit your own shop.

Bar clamps of this size can be used to glue up larger projects. I have tried using the bar clamps that I own on a larger project and though they work, they flexed a little too much. But if I would have had a set of these in my arsenal it wouldn’t have been the case.

Again, you can modify these to your own needs, so keep that in mind. They are great!
