@lumberjoe- No I havent used it enough but the little I have used it it racks a bit while planing (granted im currently planing a 4’ slab for a coffee table) but it scoots around the shop a bit too. The other issue is that the top is not quite as thick as it looks. the border is thicker, i havnet measured but im assuming its about 1”.

1” is probably too thin for holdfasts right?

Also, it came with a couple of bench dogs but also came with taller pegs(?) for the dog holes….what are their purpose? Im tempted to cut them down to have additional dogs
