DIY Tip of the Day: Cabinet Assembly Station. Here’s a third hand that will ensure square, no-hassle cabinet assemblies. Cut four 7-in. long 2x6s and screw or nail them to a plywood base, leaving exactly square crisscross channels just wide enough for the cabinet parts to fit in snugly. When you assemble the cabinet, the station will keep the parts vertical and aligned while you apply glue or pound in nails.
Jet Jointer Clamp: Most recreational woodworkers spend time alone in the shop, so it's not necessarily easy to find an extra hand when one is needed. Realizing that help isn't always going to be right around the corner, Jet now markets a small, easy-to-use clamp that's perfect for temporarily butting together a pair of boards and holding them in place at a right angle until clamps or screws can be added.
