Dowel joinery WOOD Magazine

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

The current WOOD Magazine has a good article on  "Drill joinery" -   screws, dowel joints, pocket screws, Miller Dowels, BeadLock, mortise and tenon joints, etc.   Well covered.    A couple of other articles on a compact workbench from 2-bys and glue comparisons.  Best issue I've seen in a while.

I should add, I'm not a real fan of dowel-only joints.   They tend to get loose over time because of wood expansion/contraction and minimal glue surfaces.   In addition, you have to be really accurate in your layout and drilling or things don't fit together.
