    the right jig, the right clamp, makes things easier

    even though its a picture frame clamp, it works well for small boxes.
    no more struggling with glueups and mitred corners., onto a spline jig
    2 of these clamps would probably work great for a larger box.

    Yes, they do. I've been using them for years.

    Hmmm.... I have one of these. Inherited it from my dad 28 years ago. Never used it. Maybe I should get it out and dust it off

    I like those. I'm thinking I may do some sketchups and put my 3d printer to work.

    Im glueing up a lot of mitres, for boxes, for box feet, but I only have one set right now, second on order, so Im out in the garage every 3-4 hours setting up a new mitre and letting it dry enough before taking it out clamps. I was in garage last night at 11 pm setting up a new one.
