Meet Your Saw
Funnily enough, I did read about people using threaded rod before I started this build but I was worried about using a lot of metal that would remain in the bench, as I have been known to make some pretty careless cuts. Also I thought it might have been an issue for dog hole placement. Also, I reckon you'd need at least three lengths of rod (one toward each end and one in the middle) which would mean drilling at least 50+ holes (3 holes x 17 boards) in perfect vertical and horizontal alignment. If you went that route I reckon you'd need a dowelling jig or similar to make precise repeated holes. Beyond my appetite but might be a good solution for someone with patience but who didn't have enough clamps.
