In this photo, its hard to see whats what but the clamps are holding what was glued together but so you get adequate pressure and no marks on the finish nosing you use a clamping caul. A Caul is a piece of wood sometimes with an intentional crown in it that is used as a clamping buffer. Having a caul with a camber or crown provides additional pressure squeezing your glue up together.

With the chisel in that photo I was assigned the task of cleaning door panels that had glue squeeze out in the areas that couldn't be sanded. As well as remove and wood that was not removed during the shaping process that obstructed the uniformity in the thumbnail profile of the doors. I also broke all the edges very lightly to make for better painted surface. Paint does not stand up well to a sharp surface so is always good to lightly break edges when painting
