« Part 2: Securing the nut for the front jaw Part 3 of An exercise in making wooden bar clamps series Part 4: Back jaw »

First I cut the mortise and tennons

A nice tight fit thanks to my kerfmaker

A 25mm hole for the nut and a 16mm hole (not shown) for the threaded rod.

Six nuts pinned to the threaded rods

The nut is press fitted into the hole

A test dry fit

The problem with the hinge holes from the door post fixed
