    I like to use them as single purpose tools. They're cheap enough and being aluminum or plastic are easy to modify.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Well for me it's a fillet knife. A track saw seems like a lot of unnecessary effort, though I have used a table saw when cutting dozens of sheets in the shop.

    I doubt chairs made in a factory somewhere in Asia would fair any better if the were made with Dominos. If your describing failures in which the glue surface was the point of failure, you're...

    Your cheap chairs failed because they were cheap chairs, not because of dowels. Dowel construction has proven itself for eons and is still practiced today in fine furniture and construction. That...

    The cut line is parallel to the direction of the slider. It has nothing to do with the direction of the blade. Imagine if the cutter were a hot wire. The squareness of your cut depends on how square...

    That's a lot of area for that blower to move air through. It would take a lot bigger blower to get that "sucky" feeling. Still, air will be moving through the filters and leaving dust behind.

    I would do this with just glue and staples. I'd start with a series of "H" shapes, which would get stapled together, making the internal webbing. I'd then glue and staple the perimeter strips to the...

    :confused:? Surely, if Festool can sell us Dominos at these exorbitant prices, someone could undercut them?

    Maybe that was an engineering trade off to allow for the adjustment mechs. That much travel is plenty and there is a lot of movement going on in that cabinet. It's all got to work at full tilt too.

    So why is no one selling off brand loose tenon stock? There has to be money in it.

    Are you saying that the final door thickness will be 1 5/16" thick?

    A paint tray and cheap thin rollers will work perfectly well and not require any clean up besides a trash can. Sometimes I don't even bother with the tray, just spill adhesive on your material and...

    Though I'm not a dog owner, I love dog bowl holders as projects. They're guaranteed not to end up as show pieces and be used week by the owners.

    Unfortunately, I'm on the tall side and kickbacks hit below the belt.

    You should see what's selling for slabs at slab prices around here. Leave a little bark on a stick and the sky is the limit.

    If I knew that was a product I was going to be doing on a regular basis, I'd be looking at setting up a bandsaw. Cutting that with a jigsaw seems like something that would qualify as torture under...

    Plus one for packaging tape. Nothing sticks to it. It's cheap and fairly durable. We have cauls in the shop that have clamped hundreds of tables and the tape still comes perfectly clean every time.

    If you're not making structural glue lams, don't make the mistake of complete glue coverage. It only creates a lot of volume that can't be displaced by gluing or clamping. A bead around the perimeter...

    At about 80 degrees Fahrenheit all my measuring tools become unusable. But fishing gear reaches peak utility. It's best to schedule accordingly.

    I've routed CI before, just little tiny alterations and such. It's always seemed very violent. I can't imagine routing that much of it and not noticing, just seeing that ring makes me grit my teeth....

    I almost always just go with a tight fit. But, it can get difficult if you've got a 14' edge with 30 Dominos. At this point a few small discrepancies become a joint that just won't go...
