Dowel Jig Question

akubly1 asked 2 months ago

Do you have a proven DIY method for a dowel jig? I have viewed the mad russian on Youtube, but I want your take as well. I just joined today as well!

Some doweling jigs don’t work well with wood splinters, so you need to choose the best one. My friend advised me to watch the tools on the pickadvisor website, best doweling jig. There really are a lot of useful reviews that I could read in order to find the tool I needed. Therefore, I recommend reviews on sites like pickadvisor.

Thank you for the post. I don’t do a lot of work with dowels, so I have not had the need to make a doweling jig.

Here is how I can help though.

Every minute you spend looking for the perfect doweling jig is another minute you could be spending woodworking.

No jig is perfect.

Every one will have little ghosts and kinks you need to discover as you work through using it. The faster you pick a jig, the better off you will be, and the faster you will get through the learning stage.

Any popular jig will work just fine, so get out there and enjoy your hobby!

Happy building.
