  5. How to Make Perfect Dowel Joints

    Rockler Doweling Jig and Dowel Joint

    In this Rockler demonstration we'll show you how to make perfect fitting dowel joints. Using dowels is a strong way to reinforce butt joints when making furniture. The newly updated Rockler Doweling Jig Kit with Bit and Stop Collar doweling jigs gives you a strong joint with perfectly flush faces, every time. That's thanks to two stops that let you reference off of the end or edge of your stock for perfect alignment. The stops also allow easy repeatability when batching parts, and dovetailed ways make it easy to slide the stop out of the way when it's not needed. A depth scale is molded into the back of the jig to make setting the drilling depth dead simple. Each jig includes a corresponding drill bit and stop collar. Just clamp it in place, drill and you're done! Let’s get started!
