How many mistakes are made and how much time is spent taking mesurements to locate exactly where to drive nails or screws, or drill a hole from behind ? For a shelf, a bracket, a door pull, a bookcase, a stud division in an open drywall, etc ? No more with one of these blind nailing/screwing jigs, or workshop tongs as I like to call them. They are nothing more than hardwood strips glued to hardwood blocks.
As shown on the pictures, I made different models; one short and two long. One of these has a 45° miter at both tips for more precision and for parallel eye-balling. Keep it against a shelf and you know exactly where to drive your nails or predrill for screws. No more measuring here.
