My Clamps Don’t Match

There’s an old adage that you can never have enough clamps. Personally I’ve never been fond of adages; I generally find them to be a shortcut to actually thinking. I almost uttered “you can never have enough clamps” when finishing this glue up. But I have plenty of clamps left over so that can’t be a true statement. Instead I was left wondering why I seem to have no more than 4 clamps of any size or length that match. Good news is that the drawers are almost done and I can start on fit and finish shortly.
