Our Corner Key Doweling Jig lets you join mitered corners by running dowels through the joint at 45°. The exposed oval dowel ends result in a unique decorative effect, and the dowels serve to strengthen the joint, much like splines. You can use solid wood dowels in a contrasting species, non-ferrous metal tubes, a combination of both, or even tie the joint together with leather laces. More advanced decorative effects can be achieved by double-drilling to create dowels with a multi-layered core. The jig makes the angled drilling accurate and easy. No other product on the market offers the same functionality, repeatability and convenience.


Features:

  • Creates beautiful, decorative mitered joints, and also strengthen mitered corners on boxes, drawers and more
  • Once set, the jig can be easily moved and re-clamped to drill the next hole (clamps sold separately)
  • Precisely molded reference lines and clear alignment window for fast, accurate setups
  • Includes 1/8'', 1/4'' and 3/8'' drill guide assemblies and all three corresponding drill bits

Neat Dowel Jig
A nice jig overall. It would be nicer if you could store it and the extended drill bits in the box while the jig is fully assembled. Sadly, if you want such a box, you just have to build it yourself just to store the fully assembled jig in.

Corner Key Doweling Jig
I like using the Corner Key Doweling set. However, when my order came in I was missing the 1/4" drill bit and as today it's still on back order. Can't wait to get the 1/4" drill bit to see how it will do on smaller projects.

BEST ANSWER: No case other than the original hard cardboard package. The cardboard is formed to fit the peices within the box, but it is not a plastic case.
Are the extra long bits required?
Raleigh on Sep 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Use the ones that is sent with the tool. The angle on the jigs at angle and the drill must be long enough to bore to the other side and not to have the drill hit the jig while drilling
how far can you drill the hole from the edge of the workpiece?

BEST ANSWER: The farthest that you can set it for is with the 3/4 inch setting. The drill the centers about 3/4 inch from the tip of the miter and goes through at a 45 degree angle.
