I've gotten a little more work done on the stopgap workbench, namely adding a row of dogholes along the front edge. I used dividers set at 3", then drilled out about every other one, and then started filling in the gaps. It might be too many holes too close, but this is a quick and dirty bench and I need the practice drilling plumb holes with the brace and auger. I started to put a few in the front skirt as well. Some designs for a simple sliding deadman came to mind, as did a jig to mark subsequent rows of dogholes and a dog-seating planestop.
