8 ways to make end-to-end joints that hold

Drill and dowel

Drill and dowel

A dowel joint, shown at right, provides another invisible connection. Butt the pieces to be joined and mark dowel positions on both faces. Position a doweling jig over the marks, and drill holes 1/16" deeper than half the dowel length. On one piece, spread glue within the holes, insert the dowels, and clamp it to a flat surface. On the other piece, glue the end grain and holes, force the pieces together, and clamp until dry.
