I'm going to have to copy that, considering the price of bench dogs. A week or two ago, I needed bench dogs to hold a ¼" thick piece of wood for planing. I cut some 3/4" dowel, and drilled a 1/8 hole in the top, 3/16" from the end. I glued a piece of toothpick in the hole to stop the dog from dropping into the dog hole and planed my board. It worked.
I'm not slow, I'm pacing myself!
Isaiah 44:13 Another shapes wood, he extends a measuring line, he outlines it with red chalk. He works it with planes and outlines it with a compass...
Usual kit: Table saw, band saw, dual base router and table, lathe, various saws, planer, sanders, and a multitude of hand tools.
