My cousin just asked me to try to repair a wooden giraffe carving he purchased
many years ago in Africa.  The statue (I think it is about 1 ft tall) fell and
broke into three pieces: the bottom of the neck snapped off from the body and
the body snapped off from the base.  Ibm game to give it a try, but stuck
trying to figure out how to excerpt proper clamping force on the two joints,
especially the neck joint. Are the special clamps that might do the trick, or
special tricks that anyone knows?
