i found a glue up jig very similar to this while searching the internet for a easier way to clamp up boards. i unfortunately have no pictures at this time of me using the jig, but will this weekend i have a couple more boards to build.
theres also a 2×2 slice of cherry that goes along the bottom of the jig and one on top to keep all the boards flat. i will drill a pilot hole in the middle of the jig some where to secure the boards snug with a bolt.
i have written on the sides of the jig to show where to clamp the boards to. so enge grain run along the edge side and then end you clamp to the end wall.
i stuck a few bolts through the walls to assist in snugging up the work piece instead of using a million clamps. having the corners at 90 degrees makes keeping your work square. i use parchment paper under the work to prevent anything from gluing to the jig.
the jig measures 24×22. i used mdf and pine.
