Step 1: Cutting Dowel Blanks
Cut dowels blanks to size bigger than the final size, I used my band saw but just as easy on the table saw
Step 2: Dowel Plate
Start by roughly punching blanks through plate by hammering through larger hole than finish size.
Step 3: Drilling
Drill the dowel gradually through holes to finish size
Step 4: Drilling
Ok Now insert rough dowel into your drill chuck and drill through plate gradually using smaller hole the holes are serrated so the dowels is sawn to correct thickness
Step 5: Size
Check final size if you want to increase glueing area leave the dowel in its rough state or just leave out the drilling step.I'm awaiting a piece of steel plate to make a video on making the dowel plate,please subscribe to my Youtube channel:-
