Dowelmax Junior Jig

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware is proud to announce that it will be carrying the new Dowelmax Junior, a precision-machined Doweling Jig that allows users to create an incredible variety of woodworking joints with virtually no marking, zero measuring, and a perfect fit – every time.

What sets the Dowelmax Jr. apart from the scores of other doweling jigs on the market is its row of five precise, uniformly-spaced guide holes. Because the hole spacing is standardized, the user doesn’t have to mark or measure to find where to drill. Simply flush up the jig with the end of the workpiece, choose which holes to use, drill, then repeat with the adjoining piece. No more joints that won’t close because the holes were slightly misaligned; the Dowelmax virtually guarantees a perfect fit.

In addition to the F-clamp, the Dowelmax Jr. also includes a set of spacers for making offset joints, such as those on apron/table leg joints, and for centering the dowel holes on thicker stock. An optional 1/4" drill guide package is also available for using the jig on stock as thin as 1/2".

The Dowelmax Junior (1002684) retails for $99.99, while the Dowelmax 1/4' Drill Guide Package (1002690) retails for $49.00. Both can be purchased online at and at Special Order Kiosks at retail stores. For store locations, please visit or call 1-877-ROCKLER.
