  • Cross Dowels VS Wood Screws

    Any comments on this subject would be appreciated. I am starting a project that calls for Cross Dowels never used them and would like to substitute wood screws and wooden plugs to cover screw heads.

    Pretty hard to comment on this without knowing what the project is.

      You need to provide more info.
      Dowels are often used for alignment, screws will not substitute in that case.

        Depends on the project and how strong the joint must be.
        This to me is a cross dowel. To me this is cross doweling.
