Burnishing Support

Bottom cleats. 

Clamped in the wood vise.

Clamped short way for burnishing small boxes.
Clamped long way for burnishing large boxes.

Let's face it…everything I do is Jerry rigged. Sometimes support is needed when burnishing down the cover material on the outside edges of a box. Pictured is a 12"x6" support I made out of scrap 1/2" birch plywood. I first cut [2] 1 1/2"x6" cleats, then wood screwed them 1" back from the edges, with a 1" space between the two cleats. The support can then be mounted in my small wood vise oriented in either direction.
