I good finish carpenter always used to have at least one of those in his gear, with the 1/2" plywood like Stick commented on. Also had the same thing a foot wide with 2 casters on it to move those big heavy solid core doors around.

DesertRatTom for pocket screw assembly, I like using the right angle clamp that has a post that fits into the pocket screw hole. Does a good job, especially if you make sure all your cuts are exactly 90 degrees (Wixey digital angle gauge).

It pre-dates the 5 digit zip code as well!

instead of the hinge use a thin plywood cut cross grain...

The clamp is surprisingly strong for it's size.

Those kliss clamps would come in handy if working on a lot of doors, or other big bits that need to be worked on edge. If you are a contractor finishing a house, I be they are very handy and portable.

tomp913 Lots of ways to do that, and without spending any money. I believe that Mike @MT Stringer showed a version of #3 in a post a while back. You can also use this method to hold a door for trimming, cutting hinge mortises, etc., just clamp to a sawhorse with the jaws overhanging, separate the sawhorses by the appropriate distance and clamp the door in place - finally, a use for those 12" hand screws that you bought on a whim

JOAT Certainly wouldn't buy one if I wanted one. Should be plenty easy to duplicate, for very few $.

DesertRatTom That would be handy for case work. Don't do much of that amymore, and have always used other methods to hold things vertical. Wondered why it has a cutaway base and then realized that allows you to lay the edge flat to join to another piece.

I noticed in the video that it didn't lock the workpiece vertical. There was some play that allowed the piece to rock back and forth. I think you could make something like this fairly easily, perhaps with a little more bracing. Nice item though.
