I am new to woodworking and got a fun new doweling jig, and so far I like it.
I do have a question though, and that is when has anyone here used 1/2” dowels ?
I was thinking of just using like 2 of them to in bigger stock like 6/4 or 8/4 instead of these combinations of 4 to 8 3/8” dowels. It seemed to make sense to me because less drilling, but I am might be missing something.
What do you guys think ?
The general application for this question would be like house hold furniture. I made a head board, but too late for that. In the future I plan on making a pergola (hope I spelled that right) and a couple of coffee tables.
