    Default Custom 3-way clamping table

    I follow an art restorer on youtube and he built this ingenious device to ensure perfect alignment when clamping a panel (in this case, a broken painting on oak boards). Panel clamps are cool and all, but this is just next level

    Wow! A brilliant job all done so matter-of-factly.

    I wonder if those components are available in Oz.

    I have now subscribed to that channel. I find the conservation work fascinating.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.

    Impressive. Now I'll have to watch the next part and see how things turn out.
    It was also a good demonstration on what not to do about wood movement.

    I started watching for the clamp. I kept watching for the painting conservation. That's some really interesting and meticulous work.

    He presents really well and the work he does is very impressive; definitely worth checking out his other videos

    I suspect you could get most of it here, or something similar, but I'd hate to see the bill...

    Yes I was also thinking all that would cost an arm and leg but I guess overall in that kind of work it was worth it.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who's been waiting to see how it continues...

    Thanks for that reminder Lance, very interesting project. Not sure if I could ever afford something like that, some can and do get stuff like this conserved for future generations.

    I await the method of removal of material from the back.

    Watch some of his other videos. It involves a router. On another painting he removes the wood and just leaves the paint which is then glued to canvas. I'm in awe of his skills.

    That was very impressive, another Youtube rabbit hole to go chasing down. I really enjoy the kind of detailed stories you get on Youtube compared with the rushed edits we see on TV these days.

    I was thinking that the cost of that table would be huge but I guess it would be used again on other projects and the cost of conserving these paintings would not be cheap. Would be great to have those kind of skills and be trusted with jobs like that.
