Cross Dowel Barrel Nut

SKU: FF04 Categories: ,

The Furniture Cross Dowel Barrel Nut are cylindrical shaped metal nuts (metal dowels) used with furniture connector bolts to join two pieces of wood. The inside threaded hole is unusual in that it passes through the sides of the dowel.

To install, the pieces of wood to be joined are aligned, then a bolt hole is drilled through one piece of wood and into the other. A dowel hole is drilled laterally across the bolt hole and the cross dowel is inserted into it.

The end of the cross dowel is slotted so that a screwdriver can be inserted to rotate the dowel so that its threaded shaft aligns with the bolt hole. The furniture connector bolt is then inserted into the bolt hole and screwed into the cross dowel until the wood pieces are held tightly together.

Twin Hole and Headed Cross Dowels are also available. See our full range of Barrel Nuts & Sex Bolts here.

Furniture Cross Dowel Barrel Nuts are available in thread diameters from M4 to M10 as standard.

Non-standard sizes, materials and finishes are available to order as specials, including small volume manufacture, modifications and custom parts made to drawings.cross-dowels
