Cam & Dowel Jig

The Cam & Dowel jig provides an intuitive solution to help create bespoke furniture, adopting a familiar construction method to provide reassurance and confidence. The jigs adopt a spring-loaded construction providing a secure platform and accurate drilling guidance.

Insights and Research

Users lack the knowledge and confidence to create their own furniture, finding it difficult to accurately measure and secure timber in position. We hope the jig will support and provide the user with the confidence to create their own bespoke furniture.

Protype and Refinement

We continually improved and refined the jig until we developed a solution and step by step process that achieved our ambition. We explored different clamping mechanisms, spring strengths and several iterations of the case.

Design Proposal

The jigs adopt a spring-loaded construction providing a secure platform and accurate drilling guidance. Numbered hole positions on the jig correspond to the relevant drill bit, ensuring precise hole positions are achieved for the supplied cam and dowel hardware.

The tools are stored in a compact case which includes drill bits, hardware and a simple guide, everything you need for a project is included and conveniently accessible. A depth stop collar is secured to the drill bits and the collar position is moulded into the case ensuring the correct depth is consistently achieved.
