I got this from a Woodsmith video tip and decided to make one. It works very well. It only takes about an hour to make and is a nice accessory to my bench for securing long boards or panels.

The cost was the price of a carriage bolt and a knob. The rest is just scrap lumber. It works well.

Thanks to all for the positive comments.

I get an email from Woodsmith about once a week with a tip. Some of the tips are pretty good. If you haven’t signed up for their email I would recommend that you do.
