Tools #1: Festool Domino and Dowelmax Comparison on Simple Joints - VIDEO

05-17-2007 08:12 PM by mot | 37 comments »

Hi Folks, There is alot of Domino support and bashing, as well as Dowelmax support and bashing on various woodworking forums. Typically the owners of the tools talk about them like they are just about the second coming. The detractors talk about their excessive (relative) price. The Domino “won’t pay for itself.” The Dowelmax is no better at 250 bucks than a beadlock is at 50 bucks. Usually stuff like that. If you read close enough or care, many of the supporters an...

Compass Deck #3: Decking

06-05-2016 04:28 PM by Nate Meadows | 24 comments »

With all the joists leveled out it was time to start laying out the deck. I started with the points of the star. Here its all cut out but not screwed down. I used the Kreg Hidden Deck Fastener System. I really like the system! It is very well designed and thought through. You do have to be careful you do not over bore your pocket holes or over drive your screws. The composite decking can also shift so it is easy to run out of square and true, but that is not the systems faul...

03-17-2013 11:34 PM by StumpyNubs | 18 comments »

I made this video for a Festool thing, a parody of the “Most interesting man in the world” Dos Equis commercials. It’s supposed to be tongue in cheek, so don’t email me saying I am not the “finest Woodworker in the World”, please. Visit for more woodworking goodness!

Quarter Size Cherry Quilt Chests #4: Tom's Domino at Work!

06-11-2007 01:05 AM by David | 18 comments »

Cherry Chest Update Well I got to squeeze in some time out in the shop and work on the cherry chests that are being built for the Annual Quilt Show in Sisters, Oregon. They will be on display at The Clearwater Gallery. I could not resist the new LumberJock CyberToolShare s feature, so I hopped on the internet late one night and borrowed Tom’s Festool Domino. I used the Domino to assemble the frame and panels into the final box. The Domino was amazingly quick. So quick, that I...

Compass Deck #4: Refinement and Error

06-17-2016 11:47 AM by Nate Meadows | 16 comments »

Again, this is a junction where I continue to praise the Festool Track Saw. I cleaned up the edges of all the boards bordering the compass by simply laying the track down and setting the depth. The lines came out nice and crisp. I then followed that up by rounding over the edges. I did not want sharp edges on a surface bare feet would be on very frequently. I had to order a special 1/8in Amana Round Over bite with a small bronze bushing brazed on to the the end. As a standard 1/4in...

Extremely Average #19: My Days as a Ninja

01-21-2010 04:20 AM by Ecocandle | 14 comments »

It seemed like a long time ago. The year was 637 AD, and I was studying under the master Ninja and Carpenter, Sado Asuka. His philosophy was, ‘To master the blade of the Ninja, one must master the tools of the Carpenter’. He said this often. We built a Shinto shrine in his back yard and a rumpus room, for his kids. It was strange that he spoke English, but I digress. One day I was using the hand tools, as I was told, practicing my Miyajim-tsugi, or as the master said, in his best Eas...

Iroko & Sycamore Table

10-02-2007 07:58 PM by ByronBlack | 12 comments »

Hi all. I wanted to introduce myself and present all you fellow ‘jocks with my current project. It’s a little design I’ve had whirling around my head for some time. It’s an Arts & Crafts inspired small table to go next to the sofa and hold ‘her in doors’ cup of tea whilest watching TV of an evening. Here’s a shot of a dry fit and unfinished top: I’m currently in the middle of a glue up of the leg assemblies, and a mitred frame to s...

Extremely Average #55: Is It Worth It?

02-26-2010 05:47 AM by Ecocandle | 12 comments »

The best part about blogging, as a beginner at woodworking, is that one learns much more than they would, were they doing the woodworking alone. Yesterday’s blog had some great reactions, and posed a great question, is it worth it? Is it worth the extra dollars for the expensive equipment? An experienced woodworker, who has tried a full gamut of tools, could give a solid argument for or against. I am not such a woodworker. With every purchase, the pros and cons must be weighed. ...

Craftsman Bungalow Restoration #27: 165 Mortises (Domino-ed Cabinet Boxes)

01-19-2010 07:20 AM by gizmodyne | 11 comments »

Last time I built cabinets, I used my biscuit joiner. I thought about going with it again, but since I have a Domino I said what the hey: Go for it.Solid panel waiting for mortisesThe cabinets have 5 identical rails: Two at the top for attaching the counters, one to act a a face frame nailer, and two at the back for securing to the wall during installation. There is also a bottom shelf. I start by marking the approximate locations of the rails so that I put them in the right place. The si...
