So i Finally did it!!! I drilled the dog holes in my Hybrid Roubo/ Nicholson Workbench. i held off on this for far too long because i didn’t want to ruin the bench that i put so much work into by drilling holes in the wrong place. I watched as many videos as i could find ( there weren’t many) and read as much as i could find on this topic. With this being my first “real” bench i didnt have any prior experience with where the dog holes should be placed. I finally came up with a plan and gave it a go and i am so happy i did. Having these dog holes in the top of my bench where they belong has opened up even more possibilities for work holding on my bench. If you want to check out my process you can view the video of my self struggle here:

Feel free to leave me a comment or a message and let me know what i did right or what i could do better on the next time around.

Thanks, Cheers!

Stellar job on putting in the new dog holes. Looks like you took your time, and figured out the layout for each of them. The spacing of the holes becomes very important for several reasons…...mainly to be able to clamp jigs and fixtures for a specific job. Once again, great job on the bench, dog holes, and an excellent video…..Good woodworking…..!
