I learned to weld from youtube (mostly ChuckE9000 channel). To hold the steel in place while tack welding, I clamped the tubes in position with clamps and pieces of angle iron screwed to the plywood that's used as a building surface. Tack weld the corners, then weld all the outer edges first, all the inner edges second, top and bottom joints in the end.

The result is surprinsingly good.
