Made out from plywood scraps, this is my drawer and box assembly jig.

Both sides of a drawer or a box tightly held vertically, from now on it will be easy to secure the third piece. No fussing, no wandering, no shifting.

And storage will be easy as well (think vertical).

A handy jig !

All construction details and more photos are available from this page of my blog.

Did I forget something? Thanks for looking.

Clever design, and I especially like how you rounded the corners and eased the edges. Classy touches!
