Just piddling around on a dreary evening so I thought I would work on a Template/Jig for drilling dog holes in a work bench.
It is designed for a top that is 36 inches wide with 3/4 inch holes every 4 inches. The two holes at the rear are for dogs to position the jig for the next row.
The jig has a 3/4 inch base with another 3/4 inch section glued (or screwed) on top. I will drill the holes for the jig on the drill press so they will be vertical.
In use, I plan to clamp it to the work table top and drill the first row of holes using a Forstner bit. Then move it to the next position and plug the two rear holes to keep it registered properly. I guess we will see how that turns out!
Eventually, I plan to incorporate two of the Kreg Klamp tracks, one along the length of the table and one across the short end also.
I hope to build the jig in the next couple of days.
Note: If you haven't seen my work bench, here are a couple of pics. The top is a solid core door with 7/8 inch dog holes and the Kreg tracks along with a home made aluminum plate so another clamp can be used. This table has worked out really well. It is 30 x 48 inches. My plan for the new one is 36 x 60 inches. I don't have room for anything bigger. I do have an extension that folds down when not needed. That has proven helpful.
Unfortunately, the thickness of the top prevented me from using clamps of any kind. And...I mounted a "box" underneath with a pair of drawers in it so it blocked access from underneath.
That's all about to change this coming year. I have been watching videos of other folks benches and gathering ideas.
