Tremendous idea. Too bad you can't post a pic. sad.
Great to hear.
That was one of the reason that it took me a few year to put in bench dogs. Since I do more than just woodworking I have to worry about things falling through. Glad this helped.
Great to hear; I think you're going to like the smarty dogs.
I can't tell that you've done what you've described or you'd do what you've described. But it sounds like you've got the hole thing worked out. Thanks for you input.
You're welcome. There are definitely many more uses! I am finishing a portable workbench with free plans so it is something you might be interested in. Just check my youtube channel sometimes in 2/2017; I plan to put the free plans on Instructables.
I am sure that would be fine. You can looked up "veritas prairie dogs" to see a brass version. Though brass is soft, it is still harder than wood and can do more damage to tools.
