Subject:
Doweling question

Jerry Gibbs
I’m curious why dowels seem to be out of favor. For loose tenons router based mortises are favored. The Festool Domino is a great machine but out of my price range. Clamping on a quality doweling jig and drilling a hole is easier and quicker than using a router. I’m trying to understand the difference between a dowel and a domino and a loose tenon in practice.
