New Corner Key Doweling Jig from Rockler


Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has developed a drilling jig that makes it easy to add decorative details to the mitered corners of boxes while also reinforcing the joints.

The Rockler Corner Key Doweling Jig clamps to the corner of a box and guides an extended-length bit through the joint at a perfect 45-degree angle to the sides. The resulting holes allow users to add visual interest with contrasting wooden dowels, non-ferrous metal rods, tubes or even leather cord, according to the company.

“Miter joints on boxes make attractive corners, but they’re not especially strong,” Steve Krohmer, Rockler’s vice president of product development, said in a statement. “With the Corner Key Doweling Jig, you can create unique accents and patterns with the cross dowels and make the joint stronger, too.”
