Bench stop!
I have an “out door” work bench out by my garage. it stays covered with a tarp most of the time.

I’ve been working against a wooden peg that frequently slips.
So Yesterday I took an old RR spike I had lying around. It is almost the right shape to start with!

made sure I knew where my helper was:

lit a fire:

and started banging on it!

when I was happy with the shape of it, I put the fire out and let it cool. it neither needs or wants to be hardened.

so this morning, here is my old set up:

new bench stop set so that it can be set just below the surface of the bench

and in use:

the other end is held secure by the bird’s mouth and holdfast that you see there.

I should have done this last year when I made the bench plank.

be well
