Made from strudy 12mm plywood, this hooks over your work table or bench and keeps your board secure while you carve, without having to hold the board with your free hand. Particularly useful when clearing waste with the gouge. The notch allows the board to be turned around while still being held securely. Each side has a different width gap, allowing for more flexible use.
Newest model now has cork lining on the top surface to protect your board, with the reverse having a larger V gap.
This size is suited to either the medium or small shina boards.
See the picture below for how to use the bench hook (note - older model shown)
