    Doweling on router table

    Good day

    That's the way that I drill very precise dowel holes on the router table

    The Left side drilling is shown step-by-step but for the Right one, only the first step is shown.

    The marking of L and R is very important, L is Left of the stop and R is right of the stop.

    I did not mention the fence/bit distance setting and the router depth stop setting that depends on the thickness of your wood, the dowel dia. and length.

    Thank you so much for your kind words

    I made a few doweling jigs that involved drilling with a hand held drill and they worked good but it took long time to set every hole and it was not as accurate as this method.

    I'm drilling dowel holes for carcasses of 20"~24" wide with perfect accuracy (I have a WIP that I'll post)...this set-up made the dowel holes drilling the easiest, fastest and the most enjoyable part of a project...

    I just wander, why it took me 10 years to get the idea...
