Default How would you clamp this?

So, I got these two mitered pieces that I'd like to clamp somehow, and I've found out that it's not that simple.

If I apply pressure on the horizontal piece of wood, it wants to push the vertical one, same happens with the vertical one, using C-clamps, bar-clamps, etc. doesn't seem to work.

Something I did was just to not use any clamps, because the area of glue is so big that it doesn't seem necessary to clamp it.

However, I'd like to hear the experts opinion!.

Thanks.

make several ""V"" blocks... save the cutout...

lay a piece of wax paper inside of the V blocks...
set the glued parts in the V blocks...
add wax paper to the inside of the glue up...
lay the waste block inside of the glue up on top of the wax paper...
use rubber bands as clamps to hold the whole V block/glue up together...

you have one of these in your future... invaluable...

That seems like a good idea, I will give it a try.

About that 23 gauge tool, I never saw that before, I'll google it. Thanks.

pins, not nails...
it goes pin, brad, nail, spike....
certainly...
they shoot fine wire pins (.57MM dia.) 5/8 to 2" long... (1.5-5CM)
they will more than suffice as clamps for this project...

correct...
make the V deeper and only as wide as it takes to get the job done...

what is your name...
as as often as we get together it'd be nice to know who's buying the beer...
