I don't have a drill press, but in order to make the Jig accurate, I needed a precise vertical drill holes. I checked that the dowels are well fit, and the 2 parts are being inserted and removed easily. Second using a 7mm drill bit, for the connector bolt position. Ottoman Storage Bed Bases Utilise the space underneath your bed base. Share it with us! The joint I demonstrated, shows a common connection between a leg of a bed, jqva a frame of the bed. If you require imperial cross dowels, cross dowel barrel nuts java are cross dowel barrel nuts java harder to find in the UK.

One end of the cross dowel is usually slotted; this is to allow a flat head screwdriver to rotate the cross dowel so the threaded hole can be aligned with a bolt. These Cross Dowel are not just used in the furniture industry, they extremely versatile and can be used in many sectors. We stock these barrel nuts with various threads including M4, M5, M6, M8 and M10; these threads are available in the centre of the cross dowel or off centre. They are also stocked in a variety of lengths to suit all applications.

We do also stock few Twin Hole Cross Dowels. We only stock what is available online. If you cannot find the size you are looking for, you might be able to use two smaller cross dowels as an alternative. We only stock Metric Cross Dowels. This refers to diameter of the thread and the thread pitch of the cross dowel. If you require imperial cross dowels, they are much harder to find in the UK. You could consider also purchasing replacement bolts and moving across from Imperial to Metric.

You must have an Imperial Threaded Bolt. You should consider purchasing a replacement Metric Bolts. Sprung Bed Slat Accessories. Roll-Out Sprung Slat Sets. Flat Slat Accessories. I made this Jig in the middle of the Coronavirus lockdown and was limited with the materials I have. Besides that, I know it's not easy to find metal pipes in different sizes which can fit well for different drill bits. Well, I think I got lucky. I looked in all of my junk boxes and later in my screws organizers to look for metal pipes.

I started to open each of them, and checked if the Jumbo metal 'pipe' fits the drill bits I need for this Jig and luckily it wass good enough. I think it's a good solution for any Jig you make with drill bits, what do you think?

I used a wood leftover from my other Instructable Don't miss this one :. I don't have a drill press, but in order to make the Jig accurate, I needed a precise vertical drill holes. I marked 2 places in the side of one of the pieces, which is going to be the 'horizontal' part of the Jig.

I took the previous piece, and marked the position of the dowels on the other piece, which will be the 'vertical' part of the Jig, in a position which will create a 90 degrees angle reversed L, see later. The position can be changed as you like, and according to your wood pieces you like to connect with the cross dowel joint. According to my barrel nut height 14mm and the nut's threading hole position, I calculated that the connector bolt hole should be about 10mm from the surface of the drilled wood part, in order to meet the barrel nut in the correct position.

I had some luck here I choosed a bad piece of wood with a big knot, just where I drilled the 13mm hole. I should of done it before the inserting I would be easier. I did it later for the last metal pipe on the next steps. I made a mark 35mm of the edge of the 'horizontal' Jig part. This position will be for the barrel nut drill pipe. In my case, I planned to use wood profile of 5. It's not mandatory for such project, but it was very dirty from the metal cutting and glue The first use of the Jig, as expected, is making the barrel nut and connector bolt accurate drilling positions.

As you saw, I also combined on the Jig, a position for a dowel, which usually goes together with a cross dowel joint.

For these drillings, I used the Jig in it's 'connected' state 2 parts of the Jig are connected - 'reversed L'. Note that for this demonstraiton, I used some wood leftovers and not parts for a real bed or other furniture project. I inserted the barrel nut into the top hole and turned it so its threading hole will be towards the connector bolt hole. Since that I combined in this Jig, also a pipe for drilling hole for a wooden dowel, together with the connector bolt on the same side, I thought how can I make the same accurate position, on the second wooden piece which should be connected, without making another Jig.

If ths Jig was only for a cross dowel, I could just drill a hole for the connector bolt, on the second wood, without the Jig. But, in my case, I decided to make the Jig d etachable , in order to use its 'vertical' part for drilling the same holes positions on the other wood, easily. So for these drillings, I used the Jig in it's 'disconnected' state and used only the vertical part.

I used a 16mm drill bit, to enlarge the top of the bolt hole, in order to create a countersink, so the bolt can be inserted flush with the surface. I checked that the connector bolt is being inserted freely and also aligned well with the wood surface. I inserted a wooden dowel into it's hole on one of the parts and then connected both parts with the dowel.

Later I removed the connector bolt and checked that the parts holded by the dowel, can be removed easily. The joint I demonstrated, shows a common connection between a leg of a bed, to a frame of the bed.

The sizes of the wood pieces may be different from the ones I used, accoriding the the bed or other furniture you plan. Thank you for reading!

I hope you like my Instructable, let me know what do you think, in the comments. It's recommended to watch the video as well , for better undestanding of the making process and use. Y ou're welcome to visit my YouTube Channel , subscribe, and also watch my additional projects.

You'll understand it better on the later steps. In my case, the nut diameter is 10mm, height is 14mm. I needed 2 sizes of drill bits and pipes with matching inner diameter: One with diameter of 10mm, for the barrel nut, and the wooden dowel which both have 10mm diameter Second with diameter of 7mm, for the connector bolt, which has 6mm diameter of its screw.

I needed to be a bit bigger, so the bolt will be inserted freely, but not too big. The thickness of it is about 2. I cut it to 2 pieces of 6cm. The length is actually doesn't matter too much. So I was assisted by a friend's drill press stand, Knife Wood Handles Java for making the Jig holes. I drilled 2 10mm holes which should fit my 10mm wooden dowels.
