Yes, another cajon. If I keep this up, I’ll eventually be able to make one without fudging anything. Here it is in glue up. The bits of blue tape are my method of indicating which edges I had to put rabbets in. The tape comes off more easily than sanding pencil marks.

Nice to see the wooden clamps getting a work out, Dave! Need some more?

CFrye, At the moment I have enough bar clamps, though I do need to improve the moveable jaw. I do need to make at least 2 more of my hand screws.

Looking good Dave. Home made clamps, the best, just like the masters of years ago.

Oldtool, The best part is that most of them are made from recycled wood.
