I made the bench puppies from an article in the April 2016 issue of FWW. I thought they might be handy, I had no idea. They didn't improve my skills any, but they sure hold things in place while I do my best to mess up perfectly nice wood.
Shaping one of the kitchen island legs.
Holding a 52"x25" panel to square the edge.
These things are great and really add versatility to my bench.
