Pipe Clamp Cradles

Whenever you use pipe clamps to glue up a solid-wood panel (which is quite often), you'll need some way to steady the clamps and keep them from tipping over.

What I do is make several "cradles" from inexpensive metal broom clips and plywood blocks (see Photo). The cradles have the added benefits of raising the panel off the clamps, so there's no worrying about the pipes leaving behind ugly black stains on the wood (see Illustration).
