That's where "dowel centers" can come in handy and make it easy to align
the dowel holes in both parts:
Locate and drill all the dowel holes in part 1 only;
Insert dowel centers into holes in part 1;
Precisely align part 2 where you want it, on top of the part 1 (with the
dowel centers inserted) ... much easier than it sounds, simply use some
flat scraps as guides to align the planes of the two pieces appropriately.
Apply just enough pressure to the aligned parts 1 & 2 to mark the holes
in part 2.
Drill the dowel holes in part 3.
Just a couple of examples: the dovetailed casework is attached the base
assembly on this Hope Chest with dowels, as above:
And the bottom door assembly that replaced the rotten part is attached
Dowel centers were used to precisely align the holes in both pieces.
Takes longer to describe than to do.
