Randy,

What solution are you referring to? I’ve come up with nothing yet. That sandpaper wrapped down thing is only good for the through cuts and I think I got that idea from Rick.

There are some very good ideas on this thread. I think if I’m not able to crimp the ends I’ll try cutting the thinnest kerf I can in the end.

Should the kerf go with the grain or against it? I’m guessing the dowel could split over time if I do this wrong.
