    LOL I once used this method for a soap dish in my shower recess – about a year later I was cleaning it and… well you know the rest… my bad.

    You're welcome. Hey, once you've got the jig worked out, there's this whole "world peace" thing that you should look into.

    Ahhhh, the old box-maker's trick.  I've used this method on literally hundreds and hundreds of wooden gift boxes and you are right…………………it works wonderfully.  The tape not only eliminates the need for clamps but it also stabilizes the joint from wanting to slide around like any miter-joint is prone to do, especially when lubricated with glue.Great tip Izzy.

    Good stuff. That's how I do self returns for wall base. Taping it up really good helps prevent squeeze out on the face. A cool technique.

    izzy awesome as always. quick question. do u think this can work as end table legs. just 2 1×4 joint 90 degree together.  dont want to put screws or nails in there but if i have to, then ill go for. thx and just subbed.

    I'm trying this very same method to glue something, and it works great. I'm only running into one problem, when I try to put the two glued pieces at perfect 90 degrees, I find quite a resistance to achieve it, I think its because of the no-room that the duck tape leaves, and the extra thickness the glue itself adds. Also, I'm gluing not 3, but 2 pieces.

    Hi Izzy!, I'm from Argentina and I was wondering what brand of glue you use, because I find it very strange color, here we use vinyl glue, and its color is rather white. I wonder because maybe i can buy a boat through ebay to test it. From already thank you and I want you to know that your videos are of great inspiration to me. I send you a big hug!

    Another reason that you don't have to have loads of clamps if you are a hobby woodworker and don't want to invest too much money to enjoy a satisfying hobby. Yes clamps are handy but not 100% essential for a lot of projects. 

    Thanks as always Izzy.

    Do you think this will work with a 6 foot long 2 feet high buffet / sidetable?

    Really clever.

    This method works well but if i can make just one suggestion. When taping just apply a little bit of stretch to the tape with your thumb and you will be surprised the difference it'll make to closing that joint up. Put your thumb in the middle of the tape and stretch it just a little bit. Great Videos and tips.

    I've used tape for mitre joint glueups before, but your trick of closing any loose joints is new to me. That's definitely a useful tip. Thanks!!
