  1. Just put in a 3/8 inch metal piping in the holes, glued with an epoxy, and your jig will last for YEARS to come. I've made mine just like that about 9 or 10 years ago, I sealed my block of wood so it wouldn't decay too quickly and after all these years, it's still my best doweling jig ever. I have a 150$ Jig that I bought about 20 years ago, made of solid steel, it's good, but such a hassle to use. One just like you showed is one of the easiest ones to make and to use and as you said, if it breaks, who cares, you can make a new one for a couple of bucks and using scrap. Good video. Thanks!

  2. I made one of these and it's really difficult to get a perfect alignment. I invested in the Dowelmax and that's my go to. It is strong and very precise.

  3. Finally, something that makes sense and is actually useful and handy. Thank you. Looking forward to see more.

  4. That's a fantastic idea I've got to try to make me one of those I don't have a drill press that well long story. But what I was going to say is you can go to any hardware store you name it take your drill bit with you go find the correct size of copper tubing by the least amount as you can possibly they might even give it to you if it's such a small amount you already know your glues drill the appropriate size hole to fit the aluminum or copper tubing make sure it's good and tight and that might work you'll probably have to file it or send it a little bit you already know that give that a try.

  5. Hmmm, the room for misalignment with multiple dowels in one joint is very limited. Ofcourse you can widen the hole, however, this will not only loosen the joint along the length of the joint, it will also do this sideways. It's a great low cost alternative, but it lacks the one property that domino was invented for: give lateral support, while loosening the tolerances in longitudinal direction of the joint.
    For a bushing, use brass or even better some bearings with or without brass bushing. Those options will never wear out.

  6. Excellent, simile but great idea and thanks for sharing. I'm just about to get into joinery and you've just demystified the dowel..
