I did use dowels during the glue up of my live edge table, only because it was difficult to joint a 8 foot long half slab and there were some very minor gaps in the joint. I think if I had obtained a perfect, almost seemless joint I would have left out dowels. I know wood glue doesn’t gap fill very well, and dowels were not difficult to use. I bought a very simple dowel jig and things went mostly smooth, although one was just slightly off and a quick filing of the 3/8” dowel made it work.
