The Gentlemans Dowel Jig; one to rule them all

I had a need for a simple dowel jig that would work as good as one purchased; and I created a self proclaimed masterpiece in simplistic design. The project utilizes scrap wood laying around in the shop, therefore measurements are not set any size one wants. The only requirement is the way it is constructed in order to maintain absolute accuracy.

  • Love the two tone homemade knobs. I am not familiar with that design. How does it work?

  • Cool design! Will the holes to drill eventually wear out?
