Name of Male Cut on End of Dowel?

I need to make a circle cut that leaves a part of the dowel there, so that I can insert that part into a hole, instead of inserting the entire dowel.

The reason for this is to make the dowel flush with, say, another dowel, to make one long dowel.

I just need to know how to accomplish this cut and what it's called.

You can buy dowel in 48" lengths at Lowe's?

technically, I would call it a tenon. that is, if I read you correctly. How long do you need the finished dowel to be? Or, is this for something that breaks down into shorter segments? Ultimately, I would think it would be easier to just drill out both and put a smaller diameter dowel into both...

if you just want to go the way you describe, you're bound to find a tool on this page that will help.

Basically, you want to make the end of a 1" dowel 1/2" and drill a 1/2" hole into the end of another so that you can stick the two together right? That's a mortise and tenon joint. In that case, it's actually easier to get a smaller dowel then drill a hole into each of the bigger ones and use that smaller dowel as a pin holding the two bigger ones together.

Can you take a picture of what you're trying to do?

I think that OP wants to make something like a coat or hat rack.

Use the right tool for the job.

These are called full shouldered tenons, the one on the end of the dowel is a full shouldered round tenon. http://patwarner.com/images/index_tenon.jpg

The male's cut at the end of a dowry is called a "divorce settlement".

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway!

Haha thanks for the help and laughs. After much searching, and few minutes after I posted this, I FINALLY found that it's called a tenon cut! Again thank you :-)

Most if not all tenons have a shoulder by definition, but typically they are square or rectangular, not round in woodworking and furniture..... rail fences are a whole 'nother matter.

If I had a lathe that how I would make them. If not, you can either spin the dowel or spin a cutter on the end. Making a cutter would be a bit tricky, but not impossible. A child's pencil sharpener comes to mind immediately where the the cutter is patallel to the shaft, not tapered like a pencil end.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I have to make a few of these every once in a while. Been using 7/8" OD dowel, drilling 3/8" forstner hole in the end and then glue a 3/8" OD dowel in the hole. What I was thinking about doing is bumping dowel ends on the table saw to cut a tenon- how do you think that would work?
