Good to see there are people out there that is following my motto: Make do,
get by or do without.
I've done the same thing to make dowels but instead of a steel plate I used
a half or three quarter piece of oak with the appropriate size hole drilled
in it. The hole gets larger after a few inches of dowel pounding but it is
easy enough to dill another one.
