It’s still unbearably cold in the shop, but last night I was able to finish up a project I have been wanting to do for a month. Back when I got my Veritas saws, it became evident after about 5 minutes, that I needed some type of bench hook for sawing. A while back Popular Woodworking, published plans for a simple bench hook, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
So after about 2 hours of shop time, I had 2 bench hooks for sawing. One if for perpendicular cross cuts, and the other is for 45’s. I made them out of poplar, because its cheap, and easy on the saw blades.
