Edge Banding

The Bowclamp is perfect for gluing all types of hardwood edging, even veneer edge tape. No need to spend your entire tool budget on clamps.

Veneer Press

Don't fear veneer. The precision machining of the Bowclamp is accurate enough to be used to make a veneer press, providing equal pressure everywhere it contacts the work-piece. No fancy machinery or power tools required!

Carcass Assembly

The Bowclamp works as a deep jaw clamp, going where no other clamp will go... out there... in the middle.

Face Frame Installation

A carpenter would nail it, and a cabinet maker would glue it and clamp it. But a clamp every few inches??? That's a lot of clamps... And hurry - your glue is drying! Now we can use one Bowclamp and two bar clamps per side, and get equal pressure, in less time for less money. Don't nail it... I'm beggin' ya!
