Holding and Moving Work
Use these shop helpers as aids to trouble-free finishing.
Shop fixtures and accessories for securing, supporting, and moving workpieces can make your work a lot more efficient and give you much better finishing results.
Workbenches are critical for proper sanding and planing of workpieces. To be effective, a bench needs to be sturdy and able to secure workpieces in process. A stout cabinetmaker’s-style bench, with its integral tail and shoulder vises, is perfect for securing all types of work. However, a simple, stout, shop-made bench outfitted with a quick-release vise will work well too. Make sure the vise includes a sliding stop dog for securing panels flat on the bench.
