Good morning guys, my workbench is a torsion box top which is just 3/4 plywood with plywood grid inside. I now find myself more and more needing dog holes for clamping with the end vise. I tried and suffer thru using these,

while they do the job reasonably well they are fussy to use.
Has anyone had any luck adding some sort of dog holes or the like to create their stops?

I don’t see a realistic way to add dog holes to a plywood torsion box unless the inside ties were solid wood that you could drill the dog holes into. Setting in solid wood blocks or larger dowels seems more trouble than it would be worth.

The only other way I could think of would be to open the torsion box and add one long thick timber to drill the dog holes into, since they are useful in a line.

Tim, I’m not really asking for just dog holes but any “other” way to add a way to hold stock.
