With the weather krummy, I stayed indoors and worked on the table top. I laid out the dog holes and clamp slots. Then I drilled the holes with a 7/8 inch Forstner bit. For the clamping slots, I drilled each end with a 1 1/4 inch Forstner bit. Next I drew the lines in between the holes and cut out the slots with a jig saw leaving a little waste inside the line. All that is left is to set up my router with a straight edge and trim the slots to final size with a flush trim bit.
Here are a few pics of the work done today and some test fitting of my jigs. As you can see, the holes and slots allow for a variety of clamping options.
After I get the Formica laminated on the top, I will trim all holes and slots and bevel the edges slightly. The final result should look like my drill press table.
