A doweling jig is a purpose-made tool for joining boards with dowel joints. A convenient method of joining boards is a dowel joint. Especially useful when two or more boards are being joined (butted) on the same plane (as for a tabletop, for example), dowel joints are strong and relatively easy to align, drill, and glue.
A purpose-made tool called a doweling jig will guide a drill in making perpendicular holes in the edge, end, or face of a board. With a good jig, the challenge of layout and proper alignment is met with ease.
A variety of doweling jigs are produced by respected and expert tool manufacturers such as Wolfcraft, Trend, Triton and Mafell.
