One of the main reasons I got into woodworking was to build picture frames. I have learned that building frames could be little more difficult that one would think! In order to build frames you need a clamp, I thought I would just buy one but where is the fun in that! I searched on the internet and found this one that I thought would work well and went with it. It actually works very well and was a breeze to build, even for a beginner such as myself. Thanks for looking.

Excellent and so simple! I’m sure you could make several of these clamps for the price of one “picture frame clamp”!

Well half the fun is making your own tools or refurbishing old ones, starts with picture frame then its down the road from there, you acquire more tools and the projects get more intense and you see your work getting better
and better !!
