I'd look into obtaining "dowel" rods,
applicable dia to fit the drilled hole.
Insert the dowel into the drill hole, 'til it bottoms out---
cut flush with a flush cutting hand-saw, or the like---
When achoring 4x4's, I'd suggest placing (2) screws on each face, 90 degrees/opp from one another.
This will result in (4) screws per post.
Locate each screw 1" from the edge of the 4x4.
place a screw in each face…"
What size work-pieces are you drilling?
While drilling, take notice if there is any other component that appears to be moving.
When you perform the drilling operation, allow the drill speed to get up to full rpm---
then slowly engage the…"
You can make a wedge---
suggest make it from maple.
BTW---you may want to make two such wedges---
One for thinner material and
another for clamping thicker objects.
(I have 3 different size wedges).
Make them with a small slope (low…"
Clamping pressure is applied with a wedge placed into the opp end of the tool.
(The photo you posted, of the tool, doesn't contain a wedge. Perhaps it got separated and lost,
or the person threw it away and didn't know…"
If you're going with two layers of 1/2" MDF,
I'd add 2x4 stock to the underside, running side-to side,
so as to make a rigid work surface.
(Screw the table top to the 2x stock---use 3" construction screws).

You can make a simple router table, made from MDF---
24" x 36"x3/4" stock, 2 layers thick.
(two layers thick so as to provide a stable platform).
Add a hole in the top for router bit clearance, and mounting holes, to secure the…"
I've had cracking happen to me, near the ends, in hard and soft wood,
when the screw is 1/2-1" from the end of the workpiece.
When the screw enters the wood, the screw can sometimes cause the wood to split/separate, right at the…"
"Prior to using a small round over bit,
I'd use a block plane.
Make shallow cut passes and work your way around to form a rounded edge.
For close and inside corners, a fine rasp will suffice.
Sand paper fitted onto a sanding block."
Thank you Ken for the suggestions I was actually trying to decide between the K4 and the K5 but was leaning towards the K4, I've got the basic frame design for my work bench and I'm probably going to use metal diamond plate but the ladder for shelves idea I am definitely doing and also the fire hydrant water dispenser those were great ideas that I'll definitely use and I was going to put an emblem on it but was going to paint it but your idea to chisel it is a much better way to do it. Thank you for the ideas I just can't wait to be able to start making my bench at least I'll have a few months to design it while my arm heals.
Yes it does , but no it is counter top edge remenant . thanks for consern I have several different patterns of this material .I ve made several kitcheen stands and islands of this different material.
