Portable StavePress Holds Irregularly Shaped Wood Pieces Without Damaging The Wood Grain
Jon Warwick, Warwick Ideas, LLC, (ph 601 954-5776; www.stavepress.com): “Our portable StavePress is designed to gently but firmly hold irregularly shaped wood pieces without damaging the wood grain. It grips the work piece between 2 horizontal rubber-cushioned plates, allowing me to bear down hard with tools without worrying that the wood will be dislodged or damaged.
  “The upper pressure plate pivots around a ball joint, allowing it to conform to the shape of the work piece at multiple points which results in less pressure on each point. Works great on irregular-shaped pieces of wood such as rough staves and hand-carved furniture pieces.
  “An optional metal base is available that lets you temporarily mount the Stave Press to any firm surface. You use 2 C-clamps to clamp the base down, then slide the Stave Press’s frame onto it and tighten the set screws.
  “Sells for $119 plus S&H. The base sells for $29.”
