Hello Guys,
Just wanted to share the simplest self–centering doweling jig’s design I came up with the other day. It is possible someone already thought of it before of course.

Handy device, well made. I don’t see how you get good alignment when you say use it up side down. Wouldn’t that be difficult?

You would have to use the center-finders and then drill individual holes. In other words, it is doable but not quite as fast…
