Clamping jigs pull mitered corners tightly together

Clamping jigs pull mitered corners tightly together

Because many corner clamps fail to provide adequate pressure, you can improve the strength of mitered corners by constructing one or more pairs of the clamping jigs shown at right. Use 4"- 5" lengths of 1/4" plywood cut 3/4" wide. With your tablesaw miter gauge set to 45°, cut triangular blocks from 3/4" stock.

Glue on a piece of used sandpaper to the surface to give it a little friction. Used 220 or higher works good and will not damage surface. Good use for some scrap also. This trick also works well on a 12" or 24' ruler to keep it from sliding around.

Thumb tacks hot glued (or) to some small scraps work very well also and the fit on top of my cookies.

I made mine longer with blocks at the other ends to fit on the other end of the workpieces. I do two identical "L" shaped assemblies and then put them together. Don "Dances with Wood" Butler
