Mitered "through" dowel joint?
Hi everyone, I just bought a Wolfcraft dowel jig on ebay, and I am going to make a little wooden box for it. Inside I am going to make a large area for the jig pieces, and then some smaller compartments for dowels, stop collars etc.
I'd like to join the box sides and ends with dowels and have the dowel end exposed, with a different species. I was thinking tonight that I could drill the dowel holes the way I would for a butt joint, and then miter the box sides and ends afterward. I don't have a real reason for this, other than to try and improve my joinery work and try something different.
I just wanted to run this by you guys and see if it will work. I can't think of why it wouldn't but that is why I sometimes end up cursing at myself when assembling a project. Thanks in advance!
