Well they must have dowel holes with router network so, but holess became obvious that was not the case. Nice jig setup, and very impressive results! LeoP43 3 years ago. Great idea, but what type router bit did you use.

What a disappointment! Maybe it was me, and maybe it was the jig. It just never worked for me the way I thought it should. The holes in the rails just would never match up with the holes in the stilcs. They'd be a bit too far jpart or too close together. And jig or not. Twenty years later, I'm using a plunge router with my shop-made doweling jig with far better results.

Alter a bit of setup, 1 can knock out whole sets of dowel-jointed face frames, with all the holes aligned, square, and perfectly and consistently positioned. The trick is a template that has several holes bored in it.
