The glue is stronger than the wood. You didn’t say how deep the holes are, so here is how I do it. Squirt some glue into the hole. Run a pencil down into it to aid in coating the entire inside of the hole. Spread glue onto the dowel and then insert it into the hole. You might need a mallet to assist in persuading the dowel to go all the way through, so don’t have a dowel any longer that 1 inch of the hole.

If you haven’t already done this, try the fit of the dowels. If there is too much interference, sand them in a drill…

Don’t be concerned if you get glue on the surface as you’re gonna turn it off anyway. Good luck. ......Jerry (in Tucson)
