The Miller Dowel Mini-X is designed for joining 1/2 stock and was developed specifically for use in projects using thinner solid woods, plywood or laminate. The MINI-X is available in Birch, Cherry, Red Oak and Black Walnut giving woodworkers the opportunity to blend similar woods or to design combinations that contrast different species. The MINI-X is ideal for use on a wide range of wood projects including drawer boxes in a desk or chest, decorative boxes with exotic woods, birdhouses, mailboxes, decorative lawn and garden items, small fencing, picture frames, face frames on cabinets, moldings & trim, or to repair or reinforce joints on older furniture or wood furniture of all kinds. And MINI-X can serve as an effective, simple and easy alternative to traditional blind dowels, biscuits, brads, dovetails or other interlocking joints. The MINI-X Joinery Kit includes 100 birch dowels in one of the four species and a TruFit drill bit made of industrial strength high speed steel. The drill bit and bags of 100 dowels of each species are also sold separately.
