    After reading Paul’s blog, I’m thinking twice about adding bench dogs to my top. Great read.

    +1, I’d been planning to add a couple more holes in mine and will hold up and experiment with the clamping method as well. I probably use my holes more for holdfasts than bench dogs but the additional holes I’ve been thinking of adding have to do with stops of planing wide boards. I use bench dogs as stops for face planing. One dog works well for narrower stock.

    Still wonder about holding a 12 in by 2 in by half in drawer side for plowing bottom groove.

    Ron, I’ve made a stick board for all my plowing needs. I got the design from Tolpins book.  It’s got all sorts of shop made projects that are really handy.

    Florian, not his toolbox box book, his other book called the new traditional woodworker or something like that.  Its got some nice plans for shop made accessories like straight edges, wood squares, planing stops, stickboards etc.

    Thanks Dave! I’ll have a look for that as soon as my woodworking budget is refilled 😉

    this is the sticking board I made from Tolpins book.  I’ve found it really comes in handy.

    Thanks Dave, I was trying to picture what it looked like.

    Your welcome Ken. The reason I made this is I don’t have any of those clamps Paul uses nor can I find anybody local that sells them. I have bar clamps and they are pretty clumsy to mount up in a vice and my shortest ones are 36 inches long or so. They work fine but this little stick board is so handy for small pieces, I just push one end against a dog and holdfast the other end, set the little screw at the end about 1/4 inch and lock the fence down so the board I’m grooving is on the edge of the board then I just plough the groove. The disadvatage is that you can’t really get too agressive sliding the plough plane back and forth as it will pull the board backwards. So you just have to use the plane more on the push stroke. I suppose you could brace the back end somehow then you could run the plane back and forth no problem.
