For holding the wood that I’ll be working on, I’ll need to make dog benches. Was going to buy them, but they’re expensive. I don’t see why you’d need to spend $20+ on a stick.
I never understood why bench dogs that you buy all have a friction fit mechanical device. My solution is not drill the holes through. Just enough depth. The dogs can bottom out on them. It won’t affect the performance.
Cutting up 3/4” dowel to length
For the top of the dogs, I’m using some really hardwood leftover from another project. I’m just going to make 5 dogs. I don’t think I’ll need more than that.
And with what I left over, I made a couple of wedges.
Testing out the wedges. Dogs done!
