With a Shapeoko XXL, how do you secure the piece of wood you plan on milling?

Lots of options:

- double-sided tape
- blue painter's tape and cyanoacrylate glue
- screws
- nails
- clamps and threaded inserts: http://docs.carbide3d.com/tutorials/shapeoko-clamps/ and http://docs.carbide3d.com/tutorials/project-wasteboard/
- clamps and T-tracks: https://shop.carbide3d.com/collections/ ... rack-table

There are entire books written on this, and we have a page on the wiki: https://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Workholding
