Removing Dowels

Posted by ken steel on February 2nd, 1998 10:26 PM

I am in the process of restoring an old (antique?)
table. There are five broken dowel joints that were
holding various parts together. Question: gouge them
out, drill them out, drill new holes through the old
dowels, level them and reattach the parts with a
different method. What I can see of the dowels make
them appear to be hand whittled. If this works I'll
be back to ask about refinishing.
