Bowclamp Modern technology used to realize an age-old idea: a perfect bow shaped arc. The Bowclamp's patented design - made possible only with the help of computerized, numerically-controlled cutting technology (CNC) - allows for equal clamping pressure along the entire length of the glue line... with only one clamp at each end!

Default One for the cobbler's wife

Meanwhile, back in Portland, Maine...

My kitchen has been finished from the waist down for......... three years?? (Its not like I haven't been busy )



Wow, that's a lot of face frame to glue and clamp. (You're thinking...Gee, you must have an awful lot of clamps...)



That's a master set, and a single 2 footer.













Still need to make the doors, and the cabinet around/over the fridge. Crown molding etc. But moving the ball forward.

Stay tuned!

Wow! Sweet job, Craig! I love those Bowclamps. Use 'em all the time. I hardly ever take more than 2-4 clamps off the wall rack any more!

Nice work on the cabinet. I'll look forward to seeing the doors!

Couldn't agree more. The functional equivalent of the men's tie.

Oh... and thanks! Also did the open shelves on the other side, replacing the temporary plywood place-holders.



And of course, here's the glue-up.

I agree that it looks nice just the way it is. Almost too purdy to put doors on?
