I have tried to search the site for previous postings, perhaps I’m not experienced enough for that task, but anyway, I’m trying to find a jig for gluing up compound miter joints. Building an open top box with about 3 in sides that has a 15 deg flare. in lieu of cutting blocks for the corners, has anyone come up with a jig for this situation. any links appreciated

I just watched an episode of Rough Cut last night where they were gluing up compund miter joints. They used a piece of plywood and attacked 2 small blocks with, in your case, a 15 degree cut on them. The put the piece of plywood with the block attached to it on either side of the serving tray they were building. The blocks act as a clamping point.

You might be able to see it in Tommy Macdonalds website … google it and Rough Cut… the episode was about a serving tray.

I think Tommy Mac might be a member here.

I need more information. I have some simple tricks, but they are dependant of the size of the project.
What are the dimensions of your project?
