These are the best shop-made clamps you could make. The are shop made edge banding clamps! These are awesome because they apply pressure across the entire surface of the clamp. Plus, they only take a few minutes to make.

7:13 Testing the edge band clamps
You may have seen edge banding clamps before. Usually they look like a spring clamp, but with a rubber band in the middle. That band puts pressure on the edge banding so that it’s pressed firmly against your plywood panel. The downside of those is that they only apply pressure where that rubber band is located. Today’s project fixes that. I didn’t invent these. I first saw them on Woodsmith Shop, but they may be in other places too. If you are going to do shop made edge banding, give these clamps a shot.
I’m confident that there are other ways to perform these tasks. This video is a glimpse into my shop and how I make things. If you want to follow along on my woodworking journey, make sure you subscribe and hit the notification bell so you are alerted to my daily videos.
