Wooden Bench Dogs
Our bench dogs are the perfect bench accessory – just ask any of the hundreds of woodworkers who visited the Time Warp Tool Works/Hand Tool School booth at Woodworking in America 2011.
I was at WIA and got a couple of your dogs and happened to pull one out today and use it and thought “WOW these are GREAT!”

Time Warp Bench Dogs are made of kiln-dried, quartersawn ash which is both plenty strong to immobilize the workpiece and soft enough to avoid causing any dents. Just as importantly, cutting edges aren’t affected in the least when they accidentally hit the dog (the dogs in my vise must be 1/16″ shorter now!). A sprung ball catch allows the dogs to hold their vertical position.
Hi Chris, got the bench dogs Sat. 5 May, been using them ever since. For years I have been using brass dogs, love them, yet was always a little worried about nicking plane blades, never did but was always on my mind. I have made my own wooden dogs but was never satisfied, wanted to try yours once I saw them. So far really like them. Thank you.- Dave Ray
The dogs are sized to fit in 3/4″ diameter holes and are available in overall lengths of either 3″ (short) or 5″ (long). They are sold in packages of four.

RUFF! Bench dogs are some of the handiest things you can have for your workbench… Many of these bench dogs are metal. And, should you plane past the edge of your work and your plane iron hits the metal dog, well, get ready to do some serious sharpening.And, if you really crank down on the pressure to hold the work down, metal dogs are more likely to mar the face of the board they bear against.
That’s why wooden dogs are preferred… and that’s where the folks at Time Warp Tools can help.
