Very clever idea and easy to make at home with basic work shop tools. Thank, Topa, for the post.

It’s almost like a diy band clamp….except without the band. Same concept, right?

I’ve been using a variant of the technique for a couple of years.
I like this version and will make up a set soon.

I’m a little late to this blog but on my web site you’ll find a similar solution to clamping miters but with a tool that provides a wide variety of additional capabilities.

Take a look at the blokkz.com web site for additional information.
