  1. Dowels Add Detail and Strengthen Mitered Box Corners

    boxes featuring corner key dowels

    Mitered corners are often used to make boxes. A mitered corner is a clean joint that hides the end grain of the box sides. The downside of a mitered corner is not the strongest joint because it is formed by connection of two end grain faces. One way to strengthen this joint and add a decorative accent is to run a dowel through the miter at a 45 degree angle. Installing the dowels may look tricky, but it's actually an easy process when you use the Rockler Corner Key Doweling Jig . The jig makes the angled drilling accurate and easy. No other product on the market offers the same functionality, repeatability and convenience. Extended length bits are required.

  3. FlexiPort Hoses Fit Your Portable Power Tools

    What is the best wood dust collection hose for small power tools? Small benchtop tools and held power tools, such as sanders, circular saws, and track saws generate a lot of dust right where you least want it: directly under your nose. Unfortunately, the confusing array of non-standardized small dust ports on these power tools makes it hard to connect a dust hose—until now. The Rockler 3' to 12' Expandable FlexiPort Hose Kit and 12' Fixed Length FlexiPort Hose Kit feature tool port fittings that flex to fit on almost any tool and a 2-1/4'' hose port fitting that connects to most shop vacuums and dust separators. Plus, a redesigned quick connection system makes it faster and easier to connect and disconnect the hose to your tools.

  8. How to Install Semi-Concealed Hinges

    semi-concealed hinge


    Semi-Concealed Hinges are hinges that are partially hidden behind the cabinet door. However, that's not the only defining factor. Many butt hinges and no-mortise hinges also wrap around the back of the door and/or face frame. But unlike those hinges, semi-concealed hinges offer the added benefit of being self-closing, or are offered with a self-closing option. And unlike butt hinges and no-mortise hinges, semi-concealed hinges are only designed for overlay doors or 3/8" inset doors. They will not fit full inset doors..
