Here's another idea that I found, quick and easy, cheap enough to "custom make" for specific application.

For the pipe clamp idea, why not take two strips of the required length, drill a hole in one end for the pipe to pass through, drill the clamp jaws for attachment screws, and glue a pressure pad at the other end. It's a good idea to have the pipe clamp jaws drilled anyway so that pads can be attached with screws so that the pads are always handy.

Those long C clamps are on my to do list.
kp91 and Herb Stoops like this.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Cure for a band saw blade that clicks on every revolution: Use an old sharpening stone to the back of the blade, moving it so that you round over the back edge of the blade. Also helps you make sharp curves more easily. Or buy a stone made for the purpose and glued to a handle. Pix.

A elegant extended clamp.................

I was digging through my shop and found a couple of kits for making handscrews, and it occurred to me that a solid clamp could be made with extended jaws for those who use them a lot - a couple of kits and some nice chunks of hard maple, not hard to do.
