Clamping squares aren’t a brand new thought, however that is my favourite
design for them. Once I’m assembling a cupboard, I take advantage of these
easy plywood braces and spring clamps to make sure that every
intersection is sq. and steady as I drive screws or set
clamps. To make them, minimize out a sq. piece of three⁄Four-in.-thick
plywood on the tablesaw. Verify the corners to make certain they’re
sq.. Then make the stopped cuts on the bandsaw as proven with
the fence set at 21⁄2 in. To make a second, barely smaller
sq., flip the waste piece round to its final two good edges
from the tablesaw and repeat the method. To get two pairs of
matching squares, repeat the method with a brand new plywood clean.
Final, notch the ends to supply ledges for spring clamps.
