There's a doweling jig for any budget.
Shown are jigs from 1 Rockler ($12),
2 Woodworker's Supply ($36), 3 Lee
Valley ($59), and 4 Dowelmax ($310).

Jigs vary in price and features

Doweling jigs range from a simple but nonadjustable $12 jig to the $310 multiadjustable Dowelmax, photo right. But for less than $60, a self-centering jig with removable drill-guide bushings handles most doweling. You'll also need a brad-point or bullet-point drill bit to match the jig bushings and a countersink wider than the bit.

Yea, if you microwave the biscuits and add butter you have a good situation on your hands...

Sometimes dowels can swell from moisture in the air. To use these slightly swelled pins, microwave them for about a minute. This trick works for biscuits as well.
