I saw this from another Jocks projects and had to give it a try. The base is African Mahogany and the top is out of Purple Heart. Of course the bottom is 1/4” cork I got from local hardware store “Lowes”. This was perfect timing I needed to do something for Father-n-law so here it is… Fits my hand perfectly so it will probably be small for him…LOL!!!

I’ve been needing one of these. Really great design, functionally and ergonomically.

nice, but doesn’t the wingnut sit in the way when you hold it?

You know it was really hard to make this but I was determined to make some more. So when I complete them I will post them. The hardest thing was sanding a sanding block so I improvised and took my palm sanding belt turned it upside down and used it that way to sand down the inside the block. I had to do it this way because it is a solid peace of wood. When you hold it to use it the wing nut is just low enough to couple in your hand.
