Today I needed to join the bench legs together. I do not own a biscuit joiner and needed a method of centering my bench legs. So I went to a big box store and bought the only dowel jig they had. It is a General dowel jig. I do no recommend this jig for it has to much play in it.
I had to elongate the holes to get the legs to match up. I was not a happy camper. It still managed to work out. I have the dowels so far apart because i intend to place a bowtie in the middle, so I did not want to have the dowels in the way.
The leg glue up went fairly well. All but the cold weather.
Now the dovetails for the rails begins.
Chopping on this sapele makes me nervous because it is very brittle.
