I needed to clamp up a picture frame so I asked the lumber jocks what they had made for the job. They led me to this design that self squares! Self squaring jigs… Awesome!

Nice work, it looks like a hybrid of a couple designs I’ve seen.

I like this!

How do you apply pressure to bring the joints together?

I guess it would have been a good idea to take a picture with the clamp on it. A single clamp squeezes the whole thing together right in the center. I asked for help in the forums and got some links to plans there.

Looks like a steady rest for a lathe I made a few years ago.

I got an email asking about this jig so I thought maybe I should share a link that was very helpful when I made it. Here.

Thing works great. I did one of these a few years ago and it has made a home in my shop. I couldn’t tell by the pic, but did you add room for glue to escape from the corners? I learned this the hard way…
