Nice project! Which version of the Domino did you use? I’m still on the fence about which one to buy.

I have the original (smaller) Domino with five different sized cutters.

Dominos do not swell, the cutter makes a hole the exact same size as the tenon, so there is no room to swell. The machine also gives you the option to cut larger holes to allow for movement.

I’m taking a piano apart and converting it to a wine cabinet.

i have the small one also with all the cutters,if you do mostly furniture its probably all you need,if you do a lot of larger stuff like doors go for the large one,or if the budget is big hey go for both.i gotta save some more.
