Meh! Kinda Good Idea
1st of all I think the dowel size is WAY too small. They could have gone with a bigger dowel size. 2nd the dowel jig gets plugged super easy after 1 use. So then drilling holes for the dowels is not efficient.
Needs a better way for clamping.
Nice extra flair and support
I saw a YouTube video on this by 731 Woodworking and bought this on his recommendation. I am not disappointed as this adds a little extra support and a nice finishing touch.

Dowel Jig X
Why didn't I think of this? It's absolute genius. Worked great on a project I just installed. Next time I'll use hardwood dowels. I'm going to try spacing the dowels farther apart as an experiment.
Super strong joints with this jig
