Bench Hook

Bench hook.JPG
Synonyms: DE: Hobelbankwinkel
Type: workholding jig
Used with: hand saws (Western style - push cutting),
sometimes planes
Location: wood workshop
(hand tool area - under the old Hobelbank)
Similar (More or Less): shooting board

A bench hook gives you a quick and easy stop to hold a workpiece when sawing by hand.

Basically it is just a board with two hooks: one at the underside that's pushed against the edge of the workbench, and one on top that you can then push workpieces against!

More information on Wikipedia!

A precisely angled (or adjustable) version of a bench hook is called shooting board and frequently used with planes.
