About Us

In 1995 Bench Dog began with Norston Fontaine and Karen Slatter and the simple idea that great tools were the result of great design and solid engineering.

Since then, Bench Dog has steadily grown, thanks in no small part to the enthusiastic response our tools receive from customers, trade publications, and the woodworking community at large.

Now, we offer a growing line of router tables, safety accessories, and tools for builders and do-it-yourselfers. Our tools are used by woodworking professionals, intermediate hobbyists, schools, and serious beginners who are looking for tools of uncompromising quality and value.
