Wooden fingers lend a helping hand
When building cases, I often find that nature did not provide me with enough hands, so I made my own "wooden fingers." These fingers slide down a long dowel that's anchored in a scrapwood base to steady large wooden panels for glue-up or joinery. And they leave the corners complet-ely unobstructed for driving screws or nails.
