At times we tend to take things for granted, even the things without which we cannot live. It is only when these things are absent then only we realize their importance. Similarly for woodworkers, clamps play a very important role, and without these clamps it would be almost impossible to create any type of wood item.
A person once sold off all the articles of a workshop by advertising each article or tool separately. At the end of the first day, the person received a barrage of requests for the clamps. This goes to show how important the clamps are for woodworking and that these two go hand in hand and clamps are indispensable when it comes to woodworking. It is just that sometimes we fail to understand or realize the importance of these humble woodworking tools.
While it is true that gluing the pieces together does the same job of holding the pieces or fastening them together with a clamp, but what happens after you are done working with the piece and you need to detach the pieces? It would not be pleasant or easy to remove the glue and even if you manage to remove them, they might leave behind some sticky and stubborn residue which mars the beauty of the wood. Hence woodworkers appreciate clamps a lot and they understand their importance.
