To strengthen boards that have been joined using glue you should use dowels. Dowels are a great way to strengthen glued joints by keeping things together through the use of small pegs. The following are a few steps for creating dowel joints:
Align your boards – Clamp the boards together so that the sides that will have the holes are facing outwards. Mark the center alignment of where the dowels will go and use a square to mark each dowel’s center on both boards.
Use these steps to use dowels in joinery. For more woodworking tips, be sure to contact us at Schutte Lumber.
