According to Lock Dowel of Fremont, Calif., the company's lock dowel joints join without tools and never loosen or come apart unless removed on purpose.
You can produce accurate dowel joint holes using nothing more than an ordinary drill and bit and a homemade drilling guide made from a block of hardwood.
The lateral holding strengths of dowel joints in 4-inch wide sofa rails constructed of OSB, HPLY, and SPLY supported in the flat position are estimated to be 600, 881, and 961 pounds, respectively (Erdil 1998, Eckelman and Erdil 2000, Zhang et al.
Research detailed in this paper reaffirmed prior published reports indicating that M&T joints generally outperform dowel joints. For the three species studied, it can be generally said that loose tenon joint performance falls somewhere in between that of the traditional M&T joint and the dowel joint.
Dowel joints can be a cost-effective assembly alternative
Dowel joints loaded in double shear, constructed with defect free dowels, may be expected to fail "gradually" in a stepwise manner--during which time the joint continues to carry substantial load--rather than fail suddenly in a catastrophic mode.
In the present study, results of experimental tests with single dowel joints loaded at different angles to the grain are presented and compared to yield theory.
Lateral edge resistances of staple and screw joints were more sensitive to internal bond strength than dowel joints. The lateral edge resistance of screw-connected joints is more sensitive to penetration depth changes than staple- or dowel-connected joints.
When compared with the preparation and assembly time of the dowel joint, the wood-plate joint is often faster and less expensive to produce.
The primary purpose of this study was to obtain practical information concerning dowel joint load-bearing capacity for the Turkish furniture industry using the 32-mm system.
