Square peg Cheat

07-19-2019 08:32 AM by George_SA | 3 comments »

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 Dril...

A shop made fixture for making face frames with the JessEm 08350 doweling jig

05-25-2017 10:58 PM by Rich | 5 comments »

NOTE: The small face frame shown here is what I keep near the fixture for reference. It has notes, etc, written on it and is not intended to represent a finished face frame that would be used on a cabinet. I was just going to post a few pictures of the fixture with the JessEm mounted in it, but since it’s not really intuitive how it’s used, I thought a story through pictures would help. This blog entry will basically be photos with captions that briefly describe what’s...

Videos by HuckD #17: Dowel Jigs 1 and 2

01-14-2016 06:37 AM by HuckD | 2 comments »

I’ve made a couple of dowel jigs to use on a table and bench project that I’m making from 2×12 Southern Yellow Pine. One is useful for joining two pieces of 2 by # lumber and the other is for 4×4 lumber. They’re very inexpensive as they are made from a scrap piece of 1” oak and some “steel spacers” from Lowes. Both have proven to be accurate and easy to use. https://youtu.be/lZRZTXYKiJE
