Project Information

Thank you Klaus for posting your clamps and the plans from Alex /Tyvekboy. I finally got around to making a set for my self. Your plans are easy to follow. I also used your video to help with the build.
All I have to do now is pick up a clamp that I can work with one hand while holding the (Box Clamp Block) to help make it easy to take up the tension. Trying that with a C- Clamp is a bit difficult.
Thanks Again! :)

Tony , nice job on these.I also took advantage of our friend Klaus and made a set of these. I use a HF band clamp but the corners are his design. I've used them several times already, even on the last box.
I think I know what your making that box for. LOL

Thanks Dave,
I made that box before I made the clamps. Trying to glue up a box without a good way to clamp it is very frustrating. If you were thinking that box was for the new Dremel jig you helped me with you are correct! I'll be using these clamps for that 2nd box for my son. The clamping process should go much better now!

Thanks Bob,
I have Klaus t o thank for his free plans and great Demo Video. I should have made one of these a long time ago!

Thank Pottz,
These will make it so much easier to glue up a box. You should build a set for yourself. Just follow the plan and be sure to view the video that Klaus put up on YouTube.

Thanks Ben,
Yes very useful Ben, These are a must have if your making boxes. Klaus is the clever one. i'm just following his lead! LOL!

Thank you for posting, I've been stalling off making a couple boxes because I hate the frustration of clamping. I will definitely be making a set of these before I build them!

Thanks Woodbutcherbynight,
You very welcome! Be sure to check the YouTube video that Klaus posted here.

Thanks Jeff,
I'm sure you will be glad you did! It makes life much easier.

Thank You Klaus,
Thanks for reminding me about Alex /Tyvekboy. I totally forgot to mention him. I made a change in title, I added his name. I didn't have any copper so I used PVC for the pipe. I seems to work ok. My strap is a little small so I might try to find a wider one later. All and all it's a great idea I love how it works. Your great video really helped tremendously. Thanks goes out to you and Alex /Tyvekboy for getting this done and posted!

Thanks Ivan,
Anything that makes it easy to get the box lined up and glued at the same time is a good thing!

Thanks Joe,
Sometimes it takes a village! Or just a couple of good guys on Lumberjocks!

Super cool project, Tony. Also a great way to use up smaller pieces of plywood. I normally make pushsticks out of my small off-cuts, but I may need to make this instead.

Tony, those are some good looking clamps. It is nice to see how ideas are shared on LJ's and then everyone can have better tools to work with!!

Nice job on them. They look real handy.

Cheers, Jim

My "scrap box" Runneth Over! I'm always trying to us up my scraps.

Thanks Jim
I wouldn't be the woodworker I claim to be without the help and inspiration that I get from all the people participating on this site. We all have each other to thank. Plus I like that you don't see hardly any negativity here. It's all about moving forward and helping one another.

Thanks Doug
This set up is great I have Klaus and Alex /Tyvekboy to thanks. The clamp work like a charm!

Thanks Roger
That storage box that you see is for my new Dremel Jig that Dave/ Double DD posted and helped me with. I just used it for the photos here. But the jig fit so nicely in the box now I'll have to make another (same size) just for this jig.

Thanks Jeff
Those to do list seem to never end; there are so many good ideas coming up here all the time!
