Thanks for sharing. Very useful tips, Colin. I'm sure many woodworkers will benefit. In all cases I would have done things differently and that reminds me of the old woodworking adage, "there are always at least 3 ways of doing the same thing".For example I would clamp something to the centre of wide board using 2 long battens and 2 clamps. This is not necessarily better than your method but just my natural way of doing it. I use straight-edge clamps which naturally lie flat on a table. So clamping cabinet components is just a matter of laying these clamps on a table and assembling. I have a small workshop so every tool must be multipurpose. Straight -edge clamps are just that, also giving me a quick fence for routing, sawing and marking. When sanding a large board, I just attach a straight-edge clamp across the centre, flip the board to have the surface for sanding on top, clamp the straight-edge clamp in a table vice and sand away.

I agree Colin, you can't do without a few Hand screws. I have 2 x 12" and 2 x 6", which I use as a third hand similar to you, and also for holding small parts on my Drill press or Router.
