This is a very simple bench hook. The base is a leftover piece of birch, 8’ x 18’. the top edge piece is a strip of walnut held with dowels. The bottom edge is hard maple left over from my workbench top, assembled with countersunk screws on the underside. (photo 2)
While I didn’t need instructions for this (which is a first), it’s explained in Popular Woodworking’s Hand Tool Essentials, which I highly recommend.
For storage, it fits between my bench top and the drawer boxes and is close at hand for use planing small pieces or can be used as a shooting board.
-- No, I don't want to buy the pink hammer.
