Star Dowels / Brudaw Dowels / Metal Dowels

  • Hammer in fixing for wood
  • Used to secure mortise and tenon joints

Star Dowels are metal dowels, also known as Brudaw Dowels, Zamak Dowels or Arrow Head Dowels, and are a star headed cross shank dowel generally used in the joinery and fencing industries. They are hammered into woodwork to secure tenon joints (see below) and offer a more secure and efficient solution than wooden dowels.

The arrow feature means that star dowels can be hammered straight into wood without requiring pre drilled holes. They are also used on window frames.
