This is a box and/or framing jig I designed over a year ago and have been using it since. It has come in handy as a holding device, clamping and squaring jig, and third, fourth, and fifth hand. I’ve made several sizes and added vertical attachments (not shown). With a little bit of study you can see the simplicity of the idea via the photos. Just route a 1/4” channel down the middle of each 2”x3/4” MDF L shaped bracket and add another 1/2” channel also down the middle for the recessed head of a T-bolt and viola. You can cut small square blocks to fit under the corners for support and to square frames, and add vertical L shaped metal or wood brackets to clamp tall pieces.

Looks like a nifty jig. I will keep it in mind in case I need something like that, and I would not be surprised if I did. Thanks for sharing!
