How to build a Workmate Extensions

To give the workstation jaws added capacity, I made a set of four clamp extensions, as shown below. I made my own dogs out of hardwood scraps and 3/4 inch dowels, but you could modify the design to use your workstations own plastic dogs. The extensions add 20 inches of clamping capacity to my Workmate, and have never let me down.
