I’m getting ready to assemble my little scooter. I’ve drilled the hole in the head to accept the dowel. The plan calls for only gluing the dowel into the hole. But I’m wondering if I should drill a second hole through the side of the head and into the dowel and insert a cross dowel (1/4”). I’m thinking that between the glue and the cross dowel the joint would last a lot longer.
I’m thinking of drilling the hole for a cross dowel at the black dot on the pattern.
What do you think? Is this necessary, or overkill?
Thanks in advance for your help.
