Accurately bore dog holes for your own MFT-style worksurface or workbench
Drill dog holes in your work surface with near CNC precision.
Use a commonly-available 1/2" router bit and included bushing for either 20 mm or 3/4" holes on 96 mm centres (same as Festool MFT).
Stainless steel reference pins and anodized aluminum indexing pins automatically align the jig relative to edges or pre-drilled holes.
Plunge router ensures holes are bored perpendicularly.

Dog Holes in any Workbench or Multi-Function Work Table Increase Versatility
An accurate grid of dog holes used in conjunction with dogs and clamps is useful for workholding, assembling, and positioning for cutting, routing and sanding.̴Ì_No workbench or work surface is complete without a pattern of holes.
Precisely-Placed Dog Holes Begin with an Accurately-Machined Template
Carefully-drilled holes ensures that dogs fit well and make assembly quicker and easier. The Woodpeckers Hole Boring Jig consists of a 3/8" phenolic plate 13 x 17" with a pattern of holes on 96 mm centers (same as Festool's MFT tables).
Indexing Pins Provide Accurate and Repeatable Positioning
Install the stainless steel pins to locate the template off of the edge of your bench top and clamp it to bore the first set of holes. Switch to the anodized aluminum indexing pins to duplicate the pattern across the work surface and away from the edges.
Choose from One of Two Brass Template Guide Bushings for Either 20 mm or 3/4" Holes
Pick one of two bushings to rout either 20 mm or 3/4" dog holes (both bushings included) and install it in your router along with a commonly-available 1/2" plunge router bit to start milling dog holes.
Just Add a 1/2" Router Bit
Woodpecker's Hole Boring Jig system includes phenolic template, brass template guides and lock ring for 20 mm or 3/4" dog holes, stainless steel edge-indexing pins, (6) anodized aluminum indexing pins (three each sized for 3/4" and 20 mm hole patterns), and a case with custom-cut foam liner for the small parts.
You need to provide a plunge router and 1/2" plunge router bit.
Need a Good 1/2" Plunge Router Bit to Bore Holes?
Spiral upcut router bits are particularly well-suiting to plunging applications, such as boring holes. We recommend Whiteside's 1/2" Upcut Spiral Router Bits for speed, quality of cut and excellent chip extraction. Select bit length based on the thickness of bench top you are drilling.
