Having built my freezer-top workbench ( ), I needed to make some holding jigs. Here are two I made today. The magnet keeps the wrench with the holding block.

Happy Father’s Day to everyone.

I’m going to check back with you for more ideas like these bench-top clamping innovations.
This idea multiplies the value of my wood clamps.
Keep innovating!

Good idea. Handscrews are one of the most under-rated and under-utilized tools.

Thanks all for the comments. I have a couple more holding aids to make or post. Stay tuned—I am hoping to post them in a week or two. Too much wood and too little time, as they say.
