Building a bench hook is a simple and fast task, but it quite worth it when you need to saw small sticks with a back saw.

This one is made from a small piece of pine, which is screwed to a small scarp of 6mm plywood.

Step 1: Cutting the Cross Members

Cut the crossmembers to lenght making them fit in width of the plywood.

Step 2: Add Screws to Join Cross Members and Plywood

Screw the cross members on each side of the plywood with a distance of approximately 20 cm.

Make sure that the screws are counter sunk - can be done by drivnig the screws a bit hard - to make sure the work pieces are not scratched by accident.

Potentially take a bit of sand paper and remove the burs where the screws went in.
