So number 1... if you trust your work table being flat, you want to clamp to it. While applying the scribe on the radius, it's not usual for the plywood to deform plywood will keep ot flat.
Number 2...I've used this pattern once and this is the second time, so I want protect the glue joints at the pattern for future use. A little tape now or Bondo later.
Number 3....you want to make sure the clamps aren't touching just the tops of the scribe, if they start getting a slight bevel now it will continue which you will either see a gap later and try and correct it or its going to start reaching for thr sky reaching upward like a bow or dinner plate .
Today I have to change over. I may get one more lamination and have to change to a deeper clamp. The F-style work but are much harder to tighten up.
He re is sone clamp information.
Menatds F-style clamps are heavy, but pretty good for the money. Less than $10.
Harbor freight.. what can k say. Cheap but work.
Irwin squeeze clamps k amps . Not my favorite except to hold sonething while u get a real clamp on it.
Bessey adjustable squeeze clamp.i honestly like this clamp. I had one drop and broke a handle so I stopped buying, but I wish I had 50.
Milwaukee clamp.I bought several boxes of these thinking they were tips. Took ll but 4 back. Looked good but a fail.
In a hurry to get as many laminations a day as possible, rather than recut a piece fir a better fit I thought it woukd be a good tine to show how I repair this. I have enough cutoffs at this point that I only need find something close enough and fit it in.after sanding you won't notice it.
