When they first appeared on the market, I decided to try Miller Dowels made of ipea for joining members of a cedar trellis. Exposed to weather year round in Seattle for many years. My trellis has now weathered silvery grey, and there is no sign of deterioration on any of the joints. These things are simply perfect fasteners for joining exterior wood. I read recently of pegged fastenings for ship planking that was made with tapered wood thru plugs, bronze wedged at the interior end, being removed in perfect condition from a commercial whalers hull that was more than 150 years old. Unlike metal fasteners, wood pegs gently move shrink and swell along with and in response to the wood around them. I am pretty sure that my trellis is on its way to a similar record.
