Nicely built jig. Really innovative!
Is it meant for clamping when you use screws/brad to joint the two corner parts?

I really like the slider rails to keep everything aligned.

Very functional and useful for large picture frames and boxes. If you reverse the jig design and place the pressure plate on the outside of the corner (the corner pointing towards the handle), it would work no matter how small the box or frame corner being assembled. The current design limits the minimum size of the fabricated piece as the jig has to fit inside the fabrication in order to do all 4 corners.

Thanks for sharing and keep ‘em coming

Really cool.


If you reverse the design wouldn’t you tend to separate the joint as you clamped?
