Pipe clamps are a special type of clamps that are composed of different segments to allow usage flexibility. A basic pipe clamp involves two different clamp sections. One section is the tightening clamp, while the other is static. They feature an open loop on one side and a clamping brace on the other. These two sections connect with a length of pipe and the tightening section of the clamp can move to properly connect pieces of wood. The fact that the pipe can be alternated for shorter or longer sections to connect different or nonstandard pieces of wood provides for the versatility and benefit of using pipe clamps.
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.
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.
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.
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.
