I would have to go with dowels. That size would be the deciding factor for me, if you are going to do M&T, I would hold off until you had a bigger project. The way I learned was large to small, I made large M&T joints until I perfected them and then smaller and smaller, if your not careful with the small M&T joint or aren’t using ver sharp chisels you could snap one right off, been ther done that.
