I figured out a simple jig to help clamp corner posts into my box builds. The clamp holds the post tight in the corner with even pressure from A single clamp.

Nice job Dave.   I had a post rise up on my last build using spring clamps.  I'm gonna hurry up and build me some before your patent gets approved.

Thanks Fantacone. Patent free ideas are born on Cigar Box Nation. :D)

Good idea Dave. I made a field expedient dowel clamp awhile back to keep the sides straight during the glue up process of the Gitty box kits. It can be seen here . . . https://cigarboxnation.com/photo/field-expedient-scrap-wood-dowel-c...

Better make some before the patent goes thru!

Great idea

It works great. I had trouble doing it before this discovery. The clamp would swivel on the corner and not clamp well. Now it works!
