My old work bench had square dogs and on the new one I just finished I went to round dogs. The number one reason is holdfasts. I like the fact that the dog holes can also serve as hold fast holes. Reason # 2 is because I can make dogs easily from 3/4” dowel stock. Reason # 3, Veritas has a number of work bench accessories that work in round dog holes. Reason # 4 is that drilling round holes is a lot easier than making square dog holes. I felt that any slight advantage offered by square dogs is more than offset by the above reasons.
