It was great when our idea got patented, although that was never the motivation,” Göran and Anders agree. “It just felt so good that we had done something that made it easier for the customer. With the wedge dowel you can assemble much faster, but it’s also easier due to the fact that the dowel is fixed to one of the two sides that are going to be assembled. Pretty fail-proof.” No, glue won't get the dowels out :-) But not using glue can help a lot. Many assemble it yourself pieces of furniture recommend gluing the dowels in place and some even include a little bottle of glue. The glue is usually not necessary for basic functionality (cams, screws, etc. do that) but does help make the furniture a little bit more stable and secure. The glue doesn't just lie between the surfaces (as some adhesives on some surfaces will do) because wood is porous and the glue soaks in (I am sure there is a technical term for that), and I think the dowels, which are often tight-fitting to begin with (by design) may even swell just a little bit from the water in the glue. Which is all great for keeping things together but makes it really hard to cleanly take things apart. Ikea dowels come in a range of sizes. Below is a list of common dowel sizes and part numbers made by Ikea:Once you have scored the surface of the dowel pin, try prying it out with a screwdriver or another tool. You may also be able to grip the end of the dowel pin with pliers and pull it out. Instead of a knob for the drawer we wanted a keyhole. My god how we fought for that!” Knut Hagberg remembers.

I was thinking a lot about its construction and wondered if you could apply this principle on furniture other than trestles. See, the milled grooves provide tremendous stability,” says Anders.
