    Happens to me weekly. And the cordless drill, in my case a DeWalt, does it. I happen to use 80g garnet sandpaper. Grab one end with a gloved hand and roll the shank onto the sandpaper.

    I spent 30 minutes making a template, test fitting, and gluing it up, and the clamping position did not work very well for a router. So, yes, I ending up making a shallow knife wall, accenting it...

    It also assumes that you install every screw in every hole, something I do not do.

    Your bench dog is probably only a single layer of MDF. And it has worked fine, right? I question whether two layers of baltic birch is necessary or (dread this word) overkill. The features I would...
