« Part 225: So tonight I wrote the post I wanted to write yesterday. Part 226 of Extremely Average series Part 227: Almost Done »

Hello All,

Tonight I had the tiniest of triumphs. I love it when I am able to come up with a clever clamping solution. I am not sure why, but each time I do, I feel great about it. That is all that happened tonight, I figured something out and then had to write about it.

A small success tonight, which made me feel very clever. http://su.pr/6YPgV9

Very clever. BTW, your blog is very nice – very clean looking – and you write very well. I’ll take a look at it more often to see what you are up to.

Sorry Brian, but I don’t see the idea you are trying to get across. I can’t tell which one is the sawhorse, or the jig, or your work. And for the life of me I can’t see any triangles that you mention. I’m sure its just me, hopefully just a brain fart.

I am certain that as you were thinking of an alternative idea “thinking out loud” Tracy piped up and was calling “Pick Me, Pick Me”.
Arn’t you glad you have talking tools to help you ?
I see the triangles.

Rance,

The top piece has two screws on the right hand side, which are holding one of the triangle pieces to the top piece. Then it rest over the top of the saw horse and the other triangle piece is clamped to the side of the saw horse. This holds it in place, so that I was able to drill the two pilot holes. If you look at the photo, you will notice that there are two holes, without screws yet. Below them are the triangular piece in question. I hope that helps.

Helluvawreck,

Thanks for all the kind words about my blog. I have had such a good time writing it. There are 226 post, since Jan 2, some are better than other. About 88% are relating to woodworking, with a few that are more creative writing. I recommend the Camel Musings, if you just want to read something fun.
