It'a "c" clamp when it's open, and a "G" clamp when it's partway
closed and a "GD" clamp when you can't find it!!
And on the subject of clamps I still haven't figgured out why Britts
use "g-clamps" to "cramp" something together - - - -
That surprises me to hear--I _know_ I've heard/seen the usage altho I
don't know that could put my hands on an example.
I remember getting a kick when last over there of the sign for a
cabinetmaker's shop of "Joinery for Purpose"...not a phrase one would
see over here; it'd just be "Custom-built" or "Custom-made".

There is also a woodworking tool called a "joiner". It's purpose is to
give a smooth, straight edge to a piece of wood. I was confused by the
name until I realized that with a smooth, straight edge, the piece of
wood could be "joined" together with a second piece.
A "planer" does the same thing with the wider part of the piece of wood.
