When I needed to make drawers for my router table, I thought it would be a good time to practice dovetails. I didn’t have a good way to clamp the drawer sides vertically. I found a sale on a couple of veneer press screws for cheap, and picked up a couple of large washers at the local hardware store. I spent a few hours and pulled a few pieces of 2×6 and 2×4 scraps to make this. It clamps to a bench top, so it is very portable. I’m still looking for some scrap leather to line the chops with, but so far it isn’t leaving any marks on the workpieces. It would also be nice to find a couple of light duty springs to push the chops apart when loosening them, so I could always have one hand on the workpiece.
