Hello folks,
This is a simplified version of the Veritas Wonder Dogs, I wanted to try making them as they are very useful when combined with the workbench, I choose Brass as it is easier to work with than steel.

Here is a link for the whole build if you wish to see more, thank you

They came out great Wood Crafter.
I think brass is a better material to build them with, no rust.

With the way you machined the dog with the top larger than the part that goes into the hole you don’t need O-Rings. But you could add some to soften the dog and protect your bench.

Maybe this would work.

I watched the video – start to finish and totally admire the end result but the improvised fixtures and jigs to get them done is just as admireable

GREAT JOB !
