I like to use live edge along with traditional joinery. The table has now metal fasteners.

You’re not actually going to work on top of this are you?
It’s way to pretty for that!
It’s a work of art.
Beautifully done sir.

Thank you very kindly for your comments. It was built for my stepson. As soon as he got it home he put it to work.

What is the point in having dog holes in the vise chops but none on the bench top?

- Douglas

Rather than create dog holes in the table top I elected to use a couple pair of locking pliers in conjunction with specially cut/drilled piece(s) of hickory which can easily be clamped to the edge of the table with just a squeeze. I also cut a piece of hickory the same width as the table if greater clamping width is needed. My stepson is not a woodworker and actually needs the dog holes less than a ‘woodworker’ might typically use dog holes.
The table is also hickory.
