We are starting a series of updates to our Incredible Woodworking Joints page that will include a video demonstration by Jim of the joint construction. This week features double and triple row multiple dowel joints. These types of wood joints are sufficiently strong that we consider them overkill for most applications, however we have customers that have used them successfully to build exterior doors, workbenches and large beds. For more information and a link to the video, please visit Incredible Woodworking Joints
Hi Jim. Very observant, not too many people pick up on that aspect of the test. I suppose it’s kind of unusual, but all our tests are carried out in the most honest way possible. That one was a shock, it was carried out in the office and didn’t just fail, it exploded. Luckily my wife was out at the time.
