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.
Ease of use - Even though most bench clamps are designed to operate the same, the craftsmanship of the tool can determine what an easy time you have during use. Choose clamps with all the right features and parts to make use easier for you. You should manage to use your bench clamp without any help at all if it is well crafted. The areas where your hands go should be enhanced to give you comfort as you fix the tool on your workbench.
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.
