Made an adjustable framing jig to help glue frames. 45 degree angles with wet glue makes for slippery little buggers. This pulls it together evenly from each corner. Saw the idea in a magazine.

This is on my list to make, so I’ve also added it to my favorites. Very nice job! I’ve also seen these type of clamps with a bolt and wingnut to draw the two halves together, rather than a clamp. Have you found the clamp easy to work with?

Yes, Tim, it is very easy to use with and works well for square or rectangle frames. I didn’t think of drawing the halves together with a bolt and wingnut. Good idea. Thanks for mentioning it.

What a great idea. My wife is a potter and she often buys artwork and I am the one who has to make a frame and glue it together. I think I am going to build that very soon. Thanks for sharing it….
