This is my entry for the 2015 Festool Video Contest. I make a plant stand out of a single board of ash in an afternoon. The Festool Domino made it possible with fast and easy joinery.

As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

Hi Guy:
Very nice stand. Is that your design. You sure made it look easy.
I notice in the background you had a 8” jointer. Who brand is it and what kind of knifes are on it? How well do you like the jointer?
By the way, I really like the Roll top Desk. As you said, the inlay work is very slow work, but it does make the piece stand out. Great Job.

Thanks Bigrock! The stand, while being my “own design” is a fairly simple design that more than likely has been done many times over. It was just taking the board I had, and figuring out what the dimensions were going to be based on the board itself.

The jointer is a Grizzly with a helical head. I have had it for several years, and it’s a tank. Getting a good reference face to start the milling process makes everything else much easier to get square.

And I am almost done with the secretary! I have a couple more coats of shellac to put on, then wax then assembly.

Thanks again for watching and the questions.

Thanks Roger. Actually I do have a wooden mallet, But it’s not heavy enough for the assembly with Dominos. I guess I could get round to making one someday….
