This is only my second project using the domino. This time I set the fence on top of the workpiece instead of setting both on the work surface. I was trying to center the tenon. It worked, but I am not sure if I mastered the technique since some of the parts are not perfectly flush. Possibly I rocked it on the narrow breadboards. I should have put a support piece behind the work piece. It is only a hair from flush though.
I set the domino for exact width cuts (8×50mm dominos) on the outer mortises and wide on the rest. All of the beadboard pieces received exact cut mortises. It took less than 20 minutes (lots of being cautious) to cut all 32 mortises.
I glued only the outer tenons. The rest will float (my attempt to account for future wood movement).
No problem. Just a little mallet persuasion.
Testing on the machine.
And for Lee.. A little Glue up.
Next time: Sanding, fitting, staining, Yawn.
