Another DIY Project: Side Clamps for your Work Bench

If you pay attention to the Hubpages widget in the right column, you'd have seen a new article pop in there. I made a new woodworking bench a few weeks ago, but it seemed lacking without these clamps. They are great, combined with bench stops, to hold a piece of lumber and give full access to the surface for sanding or planing. A lot of the lumber here in the Tropics is rough sawn, so planing is necessary if you're making a project that needs that finished look.
