The truth is that woodworking might not exist without the existence of clamps in the first place because it is the clamp which holds the wood or the wooden parts together, without the clamps the wooden pieces would fall apart and it would be impossible to work with them. However some argue that there is always another solution for this and that is to glue the wooden pieces together in order to work with them.
Clamps provide a lot of benefits over human helpers and their usefulness cannot be stressed enough. It is obvious that these clamps can offer more compressive force than humans and there is no hassle of the wooden pieces jiggling when you use clamps because these would hold the pieces very firmly.
Once the wood is clamped into place, spread wood glue along the seal where the wood will need to connect at a joint. Spread the glue with your finger or a piece of card stock to ensure there is an even distribution and the glue won't cause warping while it cures. Follow the instructions for the glue about curing time, and then you can release the pipe clamps. If using more than one clamp, it is best to incrementally loosen pressure on each clamp as opposed to removing them one by one. If the curing process went smoothly and pressure was distributed correctly, the wood should be firmly connected.
