Just thought I’d post this jig, for clamping triangular glue-ups. As you can see its the one I used on the box tops for the Kaleidascope boxes.
It consists of two pieces of Sapele, re-used from an earlier mitre sawing jig, with their ends cut at 30 degrees.
Giving an included angle of 60 degrees. These are screwed to a piece of 12mm MDF and cross screwed to each other at the sharp end (to avoid them seperating). The end 2 or 3 cm of the whole assembly is then sawn off at 90 degrees giving a flat for the hand-clamp to sit on. The back end of the hand clamp sits on another piece of scrap MDF, spreading the clamping pressure on the glue-up evenly.
