In Response To: dating doors (John Baker)

Dowels or round tenons were first used on furniture around the turn of the 20th century. Spiral cut dowels came somewhat later, but I do not know when. Quality doors were and are madw with rectangular motises, although now some are using bisuit joinery. I hope this will help.
