In the near future I have a need of a set of large clamps.

I considered pipe clamps, but decided against it in favor of these.

I had a slab of oak lying in the shop that I used, coupled with clamp heads purchased in Germany (I’m located in Denmark)

The oak was cut in thickness just over 1” and run though my newly purchased cheap jointer/thicknesser for a uniform size.

I used the clamp heads themselves as a drill guide, and drilled from both sides to ensure a proper hole alignment.

Finished using danish oil

Well of course you used Danish Oil, Like those clamp heads, really like the ideas of the square stock and not using pipe.

Hehe yes very fitting to use danish oil.

The square stock is imho preferable. As well as not having metal pipes coloring the wood.

I do wonder about the clamping pressure available when I glue up two 2.5 inch thick slabs :) but time will tell.
