This “Ultimate” Doweling Jig is Only Available This Month

If you’re into woodworking, you’ve likely wanted or needed to join two or more pieces of wood together using dowels—holes on one piece with pegs in the other that insert into those holes, oftentimes using glue for added strength.

Dowel joinery can be one of the quickest ways to join boards together, but drilling straight and centered holes by hand can be challenging at best. Doweling jigs solve this problem, allowing you drill perfectly aligned dowel holes in all kinds of wood without a drill press. Most doweling jigs run well under $100. Here 2 great choices:

Woodpeckers OneTIME Doweling Jig

Woodpeckers uses a unique and interesting marketing strategy with what they’ve dubbed the OneTIME Tool program. The company actually put a ton of R&D into the design of a new woodworking tool and then literally runs production of that tool one time. If you miss the opportunity to purchase a OneTIME tool from Woodpeckers, you’re out of luck unless you find a used one.

We won’t get into the details of the tool itself since this post will basically have no value after this month. But, here’s a video tour of the Woodpeckers Ultimate Doweling Jig:

And if you’re wondering if this thing really is worth $400, consider the research and development that went into the tool with this “behind the design” video, also from Woodpeckers:
