I made the top nice and big at 24” wide by about 18” deep so I have a lot of room to work on.

The top is made from 2×4’s with the rounded edges cut off so the sides were vertical to the top and I also used 1×4 solid oak to give the top that much more strength.

Excuse this drawing as I kind of mesh to drawings to gether to show the relationship to each other.

Here is the dog hole placement they are 4” apart.

Anyway thats all i have I am in the finishing stages of the actual build and need to apply a couple of coats of the Polyacrlic and I have to say I am very please with the outcome and the pipe clamps work awesome very smooth and and more importantly very strong.
