Beautiful work!

And, you really cannot have too many clamps. I've even had to make special-purpose clamps and clamping jigs. (Note the wood-blocks-and-drywall screw clamps on the left.) Push sticks or wedges are good, too, if you have a place against which to push. (The push-against place has to be stiff or it's pretty annoying; the jig I made for laminating the FD stem was tied down and hung in the centerboard trunk; back and forth tightening wedges.) I've even used Spanish windlasses.
