You know another thing is to use the little (i call them headlight looking thingys) and they work perfect no sanding required. I just glue them to the wheel and then I slide the axle right up against it and you have instant baby moon caps LOL and you can get a whole bag fairly cheap.... 

I can't seem to find a picture at the moment but think i must have picked them up at Hobby Lobby
I used them a fair amount on my early toy's for head lights and such as well

Another alternative is to not drill completely through the wheel in the first instance and only have the outer side to sand as 'normal' with no dowel showing through if you get what I mean.

Well I too like using axel pegs. No problem with them when you drill the hols all the way through. Anyway I saw a video on youtube on how to cut dowels perfectly straight. Just search dowel cutting jig and you should be able to find it. It is very simple to make and cuts very straight.

Good Luck

I sometimes push the dowels through so that they are slightly proud of the wheel, just take the sharp edges off. I like the look of them protruding very slightly for some projects.
