Dowel centers are the quickest and most accurate method to locate, transfer and match dowel holes
These dowel centers help to make it easy to precisely align the holes of two pieces of stock to be joined by a doweled joint—for example, a shelf and each of its supports. They can be used in conjunction with a dowel jig to show where the joining holes need to be drilled.
Drill one set of holes with a diameter of 1/4", 5/16", 3/8" or 1/2" in one piece of stock. Slip the dowel centers of corresponding diameter into the holes, with the sharp points facing out. Then align the two pieces of stock by hand and press them together. The sharp points will leave marks on the second piece of stock indicating exactly where to drill the second set of holes.
