Here is an open question to all out there in LJ land!
I am making a farmhouse table for a client that will have breadboard ends on it. I chose to use dominos to attach the bread board. There are seven on each end, the center one will be glued completely with a tight fitted mortise. The remaining will be glued into tight mortises in the ends of the main top. I am then cutting elongated mortises for these in the breadboard edge. The plan is to use dowels through the breadboard and Dominos as an attachment, no glue. The idea is that the elongated mortises will allow cross grain expansion of the main top boards as the climate dictates without being restricted by the breadboard.
Does this sound right to everyone or am I about to make an expensive mistake? I would hate to be buying another $500 of hickory.
Thanks in advance,
