Now for the dowel holes. Start by getting the tool. Again you will want to change the hole diameter first so that you can see what you are doing as the tool will default to the large holes last used.

Rename the new feature Sm Left_Dowel_Bores and turn the visibility of the Sm Hinge Layout off. We will now pattern the new features to the other side of the stile by selecting the Rectangular tool from the Pattern Panel, selecting both features in the browser, setting the direction (and flipping it to the correct orientation), setting the instances to 2, and the parameter to Mirror_Offset_S from the recent list or the parameter list. The correct solid should be selected, and the preview should show the three holes at the other end of the part in the correct place. If all looks good, click OK to create the pattern. Rename the new pattern Sm Pattern Left, then suppress all three of the left hand features justcreated. Save the part.
