Shop-made Workpiece Support with Scrap Plywood and Pencil Erasers
posted on by
Eraser supports for project finishes Secured pencil erasers make a stable but soft support for workpieces during finishes.

Here’s a good way to elevate small panels or projects while applying finish. I drill a grid of 3/8"-diameter holes in a piece of scrap plywood and stick pencil erasers in the holes. The erasers suspend your workpiece so you can finish around the edges, and the soft rubber tips won’t scratch the wood or newly applied finish. Reposition the erasers as needed to suit the shape of the part you’re finishing.
