Expansible Dowel Pins - Hardware
These dowel pins are the best available. Based on the principle that wood has memory, they have compressed spirals that swell back to their original size on contact with water-based glue. The spirals also spread glue more evenly than straight grooves, resulting in a better glue bond as well as a tighter mechanical fit.

Made of hard Canadian maple or birch (depending on supply) that can be compressed just enough for this principle to work (unlike softer Asian hardwoods commonly used for other dowel pins). These pins are manufactured by a unique process that ensures they are within a few thousandths of an inch of being both perfectly round and the exact diameter stated. They have chamfered ends for easy entry. Using these, you can have dowelled joints as strong as, or stronger than mortise and tenon joints.

They are packaged in sealed vinyl bags to maintain moisture content and dimensional stability. We recommend our 2002 GF cabinetmaker's glue for use with these pins. Priced per package of 100, size given is diameter followed by pin length.
