I'm not sure why so many of us are fascinated by woodworking tips and tricks. I love finding easier are more efficient ways of doing things and sometimes just experimenting with who to do something is reward enough.

One of the highlights a guild I belonged to many years ago, was a kind of show and tell where some would show off their work while others show how they achieve certain woodworking techniques, like sharpening of <everything>, cutting difficult angles, and all sorts of cool and interesting ideas.

It's interesting to me how woodworking tips on one topic and lead to another tip on a different topic, even when they are not related.

There are many good woodworking tips and it's sometimes hard for us to remember them, but we really don't have to. Our brain will often pop that image back into our mind's eye when we encounter some sort of challenge in the workshop, and instantly, we have a solution.

Such is the case with Timothy's idea of using the blocks and a simple ratcheting tie-downs for clamping picture frames. I have used a ratcheting tie-downs in the past, but only with special cut corner brackets .. and yes they work fine, but just using the tie-downs with wooden blocks works just as well and is quicker and easier ...
