Newly installed woodstrip for hold-down dogs on tablesaw tabletop

Here's a pic of a 2"x3" or so strip of oak I've bolted to the end of my table saw table top with 3/4" holes bored to accommodate 5/8" diameter steel hold-down dogs (shown in the pic). The dogs allow me to hold down workstock on the table saw top so I can work on the stock; in the pic you can see I've used this approach to hold down oak planks (for making an oak table top) to bore dominos into the edges of the planks for purposes of gluing them together. One thing I've noticed is that using the rubber hammer shown in the pic to secure the dogs works much better (for some reason) than using a metal hammer or a wooden mallet - the dogs hold much better using the rubber hammer (the hammer is intended to replace the tops of paint cans). This information might be useful to you all. Not sure why the pick came through sideways.

I will see if my TS has holes in the end for me to steal this! When I right-click on the image and choose 'open in new tab', it is turned correctly.

Another note - the end strip also allows much easier clamping of material on the table top since the bottom of the steel table top has vertical runners that are not provide bottom surface conducive to clamping.
