Allow me to begin by saying that I really liked the idea of this project & “borrowed” it from a man named Izzy Swan over at YouTube and he does a great job explaining the relatively simple process. I made 4 sets (2 per set) for 4 corners if needed and will probably periodically make more. The 1st thing I did was cut all the pieces. I then cut 16 wedges from oak that are 5” long that are 3/4” to 1/4”. I then made a practice piece to get the proper spacing and angles. I used a smaller wedge to layout & mark the piece, making sure I got it right so the wedge would work properly:
There is a top & bottom piece for each corner clamp. The bottom is the full clamp & the top piece has a cutout:
I glued, screwed, & cutout the corner of the tops:
These clamps work outstandingly and easily lock in corners with the slightest tap of a hammer on the wedges:
