Bench Hook

I need a vice, but I don’t have one, and cannot really fit one to my folding table with particle board top even if I could afford one. So, what do I do? I make a simple hook that clamps onto the bench and which allows me to clamp my work vertically to it so that I can do whatever I have to do.

  • I used an off-cut of old recycled wood, cut into two pieces, the long piece for the vertical plate, and the short piece for the top plate. I also cut an old piece of ply for the face-side. The top plate is screwed down to the vertical plate, and the face-side simply glued and nailed. It’s not ideal, but for now, it works!
