Dowelmax Multiple Dowel Joints Tested Against Domino Joints:
In a strength test video from June 2017, Jim reviews the accuracy of Dowelmax and Domino joints, uses an identical procedure to glue and clamp both types, and then tests each of them in a hydraulic press.
For the article below, we sent our strength test apparatus to a prominent magazine in England for independent strength testing of the wood joint types shown in our tests. We had no control over the procedures, or the outcome, and the results confirm the findings of our own tests.
The second video is a strength test comparison of wood joints made using the following systems: (1) pocket hole, (2) biscuit, (3) mortise & tenon, (4) domino and (5) multiple dowel.
The third video is in response to a wood joint strength test published in a prominent woodworking magazine where a M&T joint with two inch tenon penetration was compared to a multiple dowel joint with one inch dowel penetration.
For the article below, we sent our strength test apparatus to a prominent magazine in England for independent strength testing of the wood joint types shown in our tests.
We had no control over the procedures or the outcome, and the results were very interesting.
