[BKARTS] Gluing Boxes Square - Using a jig to help


If you will make your boxes double walled according to the instructions in
Boxes for the protection of rare books: Their design and construction, Brown, Margaret, ISBN O-8444-0365-2
You will not experience this 'fiddly' problems. Your boxes will be strong and easier to assemble (though a bit more work to cut).

Hi All,

I am just starting out in making boxes. After cutting the box pieces I glue
all the edges together with PVA - fiddly. Does anyone have any good ideas
on making/purchasing a jig for gluing the pieces together so they remain
square and the edges are glued together flush.
