Another option depending on how much time, money, and force is involved 
and whether you need alignment or just clamping, is to squirt some 
spray-foam insulation or whatever into a plastic bag and squish it down 
on one side, if necessary the same on the other, before clamping them 
with a bar clamp or whatever as the foam firms.

Just don't let the gooey foam get on the workpieces.
