Dog maker

9/2/2015

My nearly finished workbench needs a profusion of dogs. In order to speed up the production and have some degree of consistency, I made this dog maker out of a scrap piece of beech. It has a multitude of “high-tech features” such as:

1) Self-tapping screw to hold the stock in position.

2) A hole for drilling the bullet catch hardware hole.

3) A kerf to saw a flat face (leaning 2º forward from the vertical position, ensuring that the upper most tip would touch stock first)

4) A kerf to cut each dog to the exact same length.

That is followed by a few more steps, once the dog is liberated from it’s maker. The pictures tells the story.

    1. Hi Stefan, please go ahead and copy, I have no problem with that, in fact it makes me feel happy if any of my stuff helps another woodworker.
