Yes, and the toothpicks work easy. The doweling I have seen go wrong on lots of guitars I have fixed. And if you have stripped out a hole multiple times, there is generally some user error involved like over tightening. I prefer to add, rather than subtract. And with doweling done improperly... ...you don't even want to know what all can go wrong that I have seen. Its hard to screw up putting something in the hole. And it holds permanently if done well.

It seems like way more work than I'd want to do...
But again, I've never had an issue with the toothpick solution.
