I have one. I think it’s worth it.

I’m not so sure about an entry door, as the only person I know who makes them goes for through tenons. As deke suggests, do you think 4 50mm loose tenons is sufficient for an entry door? Probably.

As everyone else said, it changed how I thought about and used joinery. However, everybody’s preferred style and use pattern and economic situation is different. How do you currently do joints? Do you enjoy carving mortises? Do you have a backlog of projects you’d really like to get done, or are you in the shop to enjoy the process of shaping wood?

For me, it’s fantastic for the “I need to stick this piece to that piece, how do I…?”, Domino is almost always the strongest fastest easiest answer.
