Excellent solution and good video. Another way to do it might be to make the top for the bench dog in a cam (teardrop) shape so you can just rotate it into the workpiece to lock it into place. Same principal, but eliminates the need for a separate wedge.

Good solution. Wedges are always handy.

A couple other ways I’ve saved

Nice, simple, I like it.
