Can I use this product for bunk beds.

Asked by mommyonabudget October 28, 2016

Answers

No. These are too small and not designed to handle the weight needed for a bed. I would go with steel screws and consult with someone who has experience fastening, otherwise someone could get hurt.

Can this be used to join 3/4 inch plywood in a edge to surface join?

Sure - mark your location on both boards and away you go.

Can you use this to connect 3/4 inch MDF?

Yes. 1/4 dowel will leave enough material to keep it strong, as long as center your hole.

This is a nice kit. It contains everything you need but the wood and the glue! The dowels are a nice size and there are 24 of them. They are a good length and seem to be made well. It does come with the tools you need to help install the dowels. I will use them to make a bird feeder or a bird house if my husband doesn't get to them first. I think this is a great product. I have never seen a dowel kit that had the tools in it.

(What's this)
Helps create strong dowel joints that line up easily This is a neat little kit to get started on dowel joinery. I used this to joint 4/4 red oak to make drawer fronts and it worked pretty well. I've never used dowel centers before but they were nice and handy. I set my my drilling depth by tightening down the stop collar. Measured and drilled my holes. Then I inserted the dowel centers into the drill holes, lined up the piece i was joining, then applied pressure with clamps so that the dowel center made an indent; telling me where to drill the complementary holes. I drilled out the next holes where they were marked, did a test fit, then glued and clamped together. Thoughts after Use: - The dowel centers were finicky to get into the drilled holes and I had to pull them out with pliers, so that was slightly annoying - it was nice to transfer the hole location directly rather than measuring on the other board and risking it being slightly off - The dowels lined up the two joining faces well but I still had to put clamps on the face to pull them even (see pick) - The drill bit cuts quick and smooth - The dowels lined up well and everything clamped together evenly I plan to use this more and more rather than just gluing the joining faces. The dowels add some strength but they really help keeping the pieces flat and even during glue-up

The dowel rods were perfect for experimenting with double sided cutting on a CNC Router. If the bit runs the pins over, it just cuts right through. I’ll buy the bigger box next time.
