Default Corner Doweling Jig

Found this from Rockler this a.m., a doweling jig for corners of boxes and other projects. Kind of interesting. Pretty easy to make your own, but the idea behind it is interesting at least.

Tom, that’s pretty neat. I’ll store that in my old memory bank for possible future use.

I think the critical thing is the 45 degree accuracy, otherwise the holes will be spaced differently on each side of the joint. Kind of an interesting look though, isn't it.

You could do this with a strong locking miter joint, and then run laces through for a tied shoe look. That might be fun for a box for kids.

That is quite interesting Tom.

Hey Brian. If I stored that in my memory bank it would just auto delete...like everything else!

I tried to order this item from Rockler, but the shipping is outrageous to Fairbanks, Alaska.
They only ship either UPS or FedEx (can't remember which one). UPS is the worst to Alaska. They wanted over $40 to ship the item.
They won't send USPS Priority which is the only way to ship from lower 48 states.
They get mail from the USPS daily, I asked them to slip the package for pickup but they won't.
There needs to be a clause for shipping to such states as Alaska and Hawaii when they make an exclusive agreement with either UPS or FedEx.

The product isn't on Amazon - the only way I can order an item without crazy shipping charges.
A couple companies have started slipping to USPS but this one and many won't.
Disappointed. Looks like a good tool for what I do.

@alaskagypsy Sorry to hear that. Can someone buy it here and ship to you? Or you buy it from a store here, have someone pick it up and then ship it to you? Or is the shipping going to be outrageous anyhow?

alaskagypsy, I would like to see Rockler's explanation. Shipping USPS costs are the same costs to any state from any state. Rates differ based on size, weight, and how fast you want it. They even ship to remote areas of Alaska and Hawaii.

I would email Rockler to get an explanation from them... then I would post it here, for all to see.

I think you could make a version of that that might work better than the original. Lee Valley sells drill guide bushings - https://www.leevalley.com/en-us/shop...guide-bushings - like the ones on the Rockler jig. Set up a board on a drill press so that it drills the holes at a 45* angle for the bushing adapters and set it for the distance from an edge and the spacing you want. I use those drill guide bushings for quite a few drilling jigs and consider them a necessity in my shop. The adapters fit in a 5/8" hole and then you can screw any one of the various sizes into it. The thread on the individual bushings is 1/2" 20 thread so you can drill and tap holes just for the bushings and no adapter.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I bought one from Rockler late last year, but then got into other things and haven't even opened it yet. Thanks for reminding me that I need to try this out.
