P.S. En route at last, btw.
Nope, must be that taking the lazy route and using Blogger doesn't work. Hang on...Adam":1no60i98 said:Is your photo offline?
Can I put forward the humble ball catch? My bench dogs aren't a particularly tight fit, but as long as they're tight enough for a small ball catch to, er, catch, they'll hold at various heights. But to be fair I've not tried them in a round hole, so it may be a duff suggestion in this case, but FWIW.ByronBlack":37eclm18 said:a couple of lengths of masking tape around it until its a tight fit, this then becomes adjustable throughout the seasons with expansion and shrinkage.
The easiest way is to make them as you are building the top, rather than trying to cut them out later. Before you glue on the front strip, use a router and cross-mortising jig (see my website) or a RA saw, or a dado head (who suggested that?) to cut a series of notches. When this strip is glued to the front you will have square holes.WiZeR":2ug5m3or said:How are you cutting the square holes? Mortiser or just old fashion chisel?
