I appreciate the concept but it appears to my eye that (like I do myself all too often) there are too many moving parts for a two-handed work worker.  One hand holds the workpiece in position (before the clamping action takes firm hold) while the other hand works two clamps?

Gave me an idea for using those twin jaw Vise-Grip type locking clamps to use with those plywood jaws.
