« Part 5: My wifes cats wreck everything! Part 6 of Various shenanigans series Part 7: Update on the shadow box »

Every once and a while a person will come around with either a revival of old time bench hardware. Or, there will be new innovations to the old ideas, using new materials and designs. I am personally a fan of both, and it really depends on what I am doing and what needs to be held down. The one issue I have with both is all the metal that is involved in these tools. That why I came up with my new line of bench hardware….

BranchCrafted

My first offering is a pair of tree-quarter branch pups. (Its honestly funnier if you say it out loud)

Made from solid birch, the posts are 3/4 to be used with existing holes in your bench. If you so desire, a flat face can be added to the branch pup for added stability. Because the branch pup is made from wood, it will not mar your work piece.

Next is the Branch Crook.

This sure does came in handy when you need to hold that awkward piece at strange angles.

It also works great in holding up your tools so they wont roll away, and are always at a limbs reach.

And, in a pinch, you can also use it as a bench mounted sling shot for when the evil cats come into the shop. Meow is right folks!

What’s also great with these is they are compatible with the 20mm MFT (Festool) holes. You just need to remove a whittle of the post to make it fit.

Remember… Where there’s a willow, there’s a way!

I am embarrassed for you… You Canadians sure are an odd bunch of twigs!

Tree-mend-us idea.

-- Backer boards, stop blocks, build oversized, and never buy a hand plane--

Have your say...
