no previous part Part 1 of Butterfly Dining Table series Part 2: Bent Laminated Lower Rails »

After the legs have been completed, I start working on the rails. They ended up a full 1” thick, and then join them at a 45 degree angle to the legs with the Festool Domino.

As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

Very nice. That is going to be a beautiful table. The one Festool product that I sometimes think about purchasing is the domino joiner. I have jigs set up with the plunge router for loose tenons, but your machine is a heck of a lot quicker, and you can purchase the dominos.

Nice! Things always seem to work perfectly in your videos (not so in my world). Looking forward to following this beautiful table to completion.

Trust me, they always don’t. However in the videos. I can just always edit out some of the crazy stuff that happens.
