It appears to me that the workpiece was fastened with double sided tape and some blocks to counter side thrust, but no real clamps.
I quit using tape a few years ago because it would every now and then let go. Usually because the wood bowed just a tad as it was being cut. Evidently the wood is a lot stronger than the tape.
That thing about watching a machine from YouTube is ridiculous! Oh great, a person can watch their shop burn down no matter where they are! If you are somewhere else you sure as heck are not in the shop to stop it.
Edit: I rewatched the vid. I think I see two clamps, one on the left and one in the back. But nothing on the front or left side. What was this person thinking? At any rate, I do not trust double sided tape one bit.
