thank you @mrg and @JayT.

@mrg, would you recommend to use your build without the threaded rod? HD nearby has no rod long enough to go 6”, altho they have long enough to do the shorter sides.

@JayT, those bench dogs holes? is that what they are called… basically I’m trying to have some system to hold down a board to plane its face. I cannot find some clear instructions on how to drill those holes. If I drill through they would work for the sort of holdowns or clamp trick that go on top of the face, but to do face planing you need something that just sticks out a bunch. Do you drill those holes at two diff thickness, one thinner that goes through, and one thicker for a thicker hold stop or what’s it called…?
