This is a simple fix to one of my hardest task in the workshop GLUE-UP and clamping. How did I not know about this simple solution earlier! :D Two 1-1/4 PVC plumbing tubes bolted to two hefty block raised 3” above the table. The 3” provides ample clearance for clamps and squares.

Nice! And if you create a birdsmouth notch facing down on the bottom of the wood blocks, you could even stack them to do multiple glueups.

Good idea,Sarge! Perfect example of the KISS school of thought.

Excellent idea. Also helps with excess glue drip on the bottom and you can just stand them in the corner when not in use.

Thank you for all the nice comments!! I hang my “glue jig” on the wall out of the way. I made a pair of matching cleat, attached it to the wall and hang the pipes on them.
