Another option - copper pipe sections as liners

Another option (similar to the steel bushing idea) is to epoxy copper pipe (3/4" dia) liners in your existing dog holes. You may need to file a bit to make the pipe sections fit. I got this idea from someone on this forum about 17 years ago when I was building my workbench top out of 4 layers of plywood, skinned with hardboard. It has worked well for me over all these years. I am now thinking about upgrading the top to maple, and will likely do the same with the dog holes.
