    Thanks! While, I'm not considering tubular steel (well, rectangular "tubular" steel instead) it should be an interesting read.

    That's definitely one to print and put in the library.

    Just put it in my digital library, Fritz. Although I am building in wood, the jigging techniques are the same.

    In fact, I am using the same technique to keep my sides in alignment as I assemble---small blocks of wood at strategic locations.
