Cheap Easy To Make Cheek Rest

This took just a few hours to make mostly with a dremel tool. Its is made from an old road safety sign which is just slightly thinner than a 55 gallon plastic drum which would probably work equally as well. I already had everything laying around (plastic paint,sign,sand paper) except the hardware which cost me $2.20. I havnt got a chance to feild test it yet but it feels ok laying in the living room floor. Sorry about picture quality they are Phone pics.

Re: Cheap Easy To Make Cheek Rest

I like it! The pictures are quite good but I can't see the fasteners on the left side. Wingnuts?

Good job. Check out this website for future projects...

Give ya a 9 on that one.

Use carriage bolts and it'll be a 10.

Innovation/DIY is where it's at!!
