Dowel Screws vs Hanger Bolts
Hey guys, I'm new to woodworking, and new to this forum, so I have a question for you.
I am building a table and I wanted to have legs which can be screwed on and off at will. I have narrowed my options down to hanger bolts and dowel screws.
I am weary of driving a screw into the side of a 2x2 because I feel it will crack (but I'm not sure that table legs with pre-inserted hanger bolts would be stronger).
Which of these two would be the best option? If the hanger bolt idea will cost $40 more, is it worth it? How long will each of the ideas last, assuming minimal usage, and not tons of load? Can dowel screws even be screwed on and off?
Thanks in advance!
