Here is where those seasoned veterans of the Festool Domino can point and laugh at some rookie mistakes. I am making a new cabinet to house my air compressor because the dawgone thing is soooo loud. So I thought it would be a great project to put my new Domino through some paces. As I was trying to understand some things on this machine I plunged into the face of some scrap 3/4” plywood I would be using to make the carcass. Well I created a through Domino, so back to the instruction book I went. After some reading I found that not only is there a method to choosing the correct size Domino to use there is also some math involved. With the Domino I was cutting I had to adjust the depth of cut on the faces of the plywood as well as on the “end grain” to make up the depth you lose on the face plunge. One important lesson learned here is to make sure that while pre-assembling the Dominoes have to be seated all of the way or you will get this.
You can see after paring away the material there is the culprit, a Domino that did not seat all the way in!
