How I join two pieces of wood with a square peg.

I start of by ripping a square dowel on my table saw and I round one end on my disk sander to fit in my drill chuck.

Then I cut a shoulder

Then I put it through my dowel making jig rounding up to the shoulder I cut. I step down the dowel in 0,5mm increments until I reach the dowel size I want. (In this case I went from 8mm down to 5,5mm)

Then I cut the dowel

I sand the bevels on my disk sander

Finished square peg/dowel

Drill a hole and insert the square peg/dowel
