Quick Tip: Bench Dogs

Bob Vila


A bench dog is a great tool for any woodworker's shop. Bench dogs are often used in pairs, with one pair set into a tail vice, the other into an opening in the bench top. The vice is tightened to hold the wood securely. That way, you can keep your mind on your plank. Though bench dogs are sometimes made of steel or iron, the woodworker's choice is usually wood.
