Bench Board Support

In the past I used a stand to support the ends of long boards that were clamped in my bench vise. But the stand would always get in the way, and it was a hassle to set up every time I needed it. So I came up with a simple "fold-away" support to solve this problem.


As you can see in Fig.1, the support is just a short beveled section of 2x4 that is attached to the leg of my workbench with a butt hinge.

Now when I want to clamp a long board into my bench vise, I can just swing the support into place. And when not in use, it folds under the bench and out of the way.
