Dwain, I was more concerned with stability but my solution also makes for a wider face.
For Jorgensen style, 3/4” pipe clamps, I cut 3/4” MDF triangles 2” wide at the top, 5” long and 3” wide at the bottom. Drilled a 7/8” hole for the pipe. On mine, there are two small holes for screws on each clamp head and tail piece. Used those to secure the MDF to the clamp.
I’ve used these clamps and pads for several years and, they still do the job.
