Topic tags/keywords: question clamp

Hi,
just wanted to check what you’re using /what’s most practical when clamping cabinet
sides for assembly (clamping pieces at right angles) – metal squares
like ones sold at woodpeckers
http://www.woodpeck.com/clampingsquare6.html, something like the bessey ws6
(http://www.pentagondirect.com/p/bessey-ws6-ws6-angle-clamp)
or something you made yourself ?

I’ve got the WS6 style clamp, but it’s only good for smaller boxes. For larger cabinets I use shop-made plywood corner clamps. I’ll post a picture of what I’m talking about here once I draw one in Sketchup.

Here’s, what I’m talking about. You can make them any size you need and get 2 clamp aids out of a square piece of 3/4” plywood. Just cut the flat surfaces wide enough for your clamps. The hole is for mounting or using a spring clamp for additional support. These particular clamps I drew are 12”x12” cut in half diagonally.

Thanks Greg ! OK, so WS6 is off the list at least for the cabinets.
I really got to get into using sketchup – really helps.
