I am a new member here, I read the site from time to time but never signed up. I am working on a 12×20 shop and hope to have power soon. I was looking a workbench plans and came across pictures of a bench built by TheDane – I like his workbench top made out of pine – it is like 3.5” thick.

I was just wondering how that worked out – has it stayed flat and how do the dog holes hold up?
How have the dog holes held up with the softer nature of pine?
How did he get such thick pine – the boards look like 2×6s to me – did he glue up or have something custom made?
Are there tongue and groove routed onto the boards for the top or how did they stay in place?
I am a power tool guy so I was thinking of using no vise but putting in several rows of dog holes and routing in some T track – I wonder how this would work out in a top made out of pine?

I would like to e-mail him directly but I cannot e-mail till I have 5 posts – and I don’t post alot even on boards I have been a member of for years. Just more of a reader so it could take a few months for me to get 5 posts here.

Welcome to being an active member. You can post a couple of your projects and your shop entry. You can also respond in this tread. I think the best way to get answers would be to post your questions in the Dane’s shop entry or in the post where he shows the bench. If you post there he will get an email notification of your questions.
