Upgraded Carport!

"Greetings. Not sure what im looking at but as your name suggest, is this a carport that was converted to a closed space using pocket hole joinery? If so, was the project difficult to complete?"

"John, Place a "wedge" on the surface of the workpiece, for the swivel clamp face to rest on. To resist slippage of the wedge: bond a sheet of slip-resistant material on wedge the face, that mates with the workpiece surface. Slip resistant…"

"Hi, Tim.  Thank you for your response.  I might try fashioning a 'jig' set-up to accommodate clamps and to reduce wider angles.  It's kinda fun to be creative, and with Kreg items, it makes diy ideas accessible. …"

"I've had limited success to about 10 degrees from perpendicular.  Any more that than and the clamp pressure tends to cause the joint to slide apart."

The Kreg 90 degree Clamp

I own a neat-looking 90-degree Clamp [one end has a swivel base and the other clamping end [pin-like] fits into a Kreg-drilled hole].  I should have utilized my clamp in earlier projects, but I'm still learning. Question:  Has anyone had success using this Clamp in other than a 90-degree setting.  For instance, could I use it in securing some of my mitre cuts, ie: 45-degrees, etc.!I just love using my Kreg K4 Master Jig and for those interested in making their very own storage box from the Kreg…See More
