Since I don't have anything to do but wait on the delivery of my machine, I have time to think about things so I have another question.
When doing a double sided project and holding it in place with dowels, do you drill the holes for reference dowels with a standard end mill or do you drill them with a standard drill bit? Is there some other type of bit that is used for this?
Then, what type of dowel do you use? just cut a piece of the ones from a big box store or do you guys use the dowel pins that are typically used to join wood together? I saw a very large number of dowel pins on Amazon for pretty cheap. I am assuming that wood is preferred to keep from damaging a router bit should it hit the pin. I know I won't need that for a while, but while I am sitting here thinking, well I might as well ask!
