Here's a trick my Grandfather taught me how to clamp chair legs if You do n
ot have Clamps. Also I failed to illustrate that he weighted the seat to gl
ue on the legs beneath it then wrapped waxpaper below the Glue Joint and f
asten it wilh tape to avoid glue stains.You can also wrap rungs and legs be
low them for the same purpose.
Heres the link to the pic.
We often have to think outside the box. ;~)
I have used the wax paper trick on many occasions when using the dry fit
carcass of a cabinet to position mid rails on face frames during the
face frame glue up.

Similar to the wax paper trick, we used to use Vaseline when using epoxy on
Box Derby cars.
For example, when we wanted to permanently affix a nut or steel mounting pl
ate to the
chassis, we would coat the threaded hole and bolts with Vaseline and then e
parts in place using bolts as a clamp/alignment tool. Once the epoxy dried
, the bolts
could be removed/reinserted whenever required, sometimes hundreds of times
the life of the car.
You can also "mold" epoxy into a specific shape by coating an object with V
and pressing it down into the epoxy until it cures.
