Charlie, perhaps you can post on how to get the perfect glue up, because mine never are lol, although they have gotten much much better since I decided not to use dowels.

I thought doweling would make it easier, but only if the holes are correctly aligned and the boards are identical thicknesses. I find it easier and quicker now to just joint the edges and do a glue up with one side of all boards flush during the glue up.

PurpLev, that sounds like an interesting trick. I’ll have to try that out.
