A bench pin is a customize-able, consumable multi-tool which can be clamped to any work surface to support small work for precise operations. Sawing, drilling, filing, sanding, gluing, painting, forming - this surface is adaptive, movable, and in the end, beautiful in its own right. Who knew a small piece of wood could be so winning?
In the photo I'm using the bench pin for a classic technique: sawing with a jeweler's saw. While the saw and blade are tools I provided myself, all the tools to make the bench pin can be found at Techshop Detroit (www.techshop.ws
), where I made it.
