Decided I needed some bench hooks to cut some stuff out with the jig saw and to drill holes. Made these out of scrap wood around the shop and coated them with BLO to seal them. Added eye hooks on one end to hang at the end of one of my work benches.

Looks good, Mel. Why the beefed up end?

Thought it might give me a little more stability on side motion. Once I used them I figured it was probably unnecessary. If nothing else it make’s them look cooler. Ha Ha.

Great idea.
I’m sure they will prove invaluable.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

When you are alone in a shop with only two hands, any help is very welcome.
