Make a Set of Clamping Cauls Photos by Rob Brown INFO: DIFFICULTY - 1/5LENGTH/TIME - 1/5COST - 1/5Most woodworkers think of exotic little projects when they look at their stack of offcuts.Not me.I think of clamping cauls in different shapes and sizes.
These little gems assist me in countless ways.I don't use a caul every time I use a clamp, but close to it.The main use for cauls is to ensure clamping force is distributed across a larger area than just the head of the clamp.
If you're clamping up oversized, rough boards for a large tabletop cauls probably aren't necessary, but if you're working with thin edge trim, or other delicate parts, cauls are the difference between nice, tight fitting joints, and having to start over.
And with the higher surface area provided by the cauls you are less likely to crush the workpiece you're clamping.This is a great reason to make cauls from hardwoods.My caul collection is dynamic.When glue sticks to the cauls I tend to replace them, rather than risk imprinting the hardened glue drop into my next finished surface.
Applying packing tape to the surfaces will help, but I find this more hassle than it's...
