if you were joining an apron to table leg would you use 8mm or 10 mm?

I don’t have dominos, but I use 12mm dowels.

Buck, it would depend on the size and use of the table for me. Are you making an end table or a dining table?

Buck, in that case I would use 2 10mm dominoes for a 1” thick apron and 2 8mm’s for a 3/4” apron.

I just use 8×50’s on table leg to apron applications,but it will need more support than Domino’s alone…

As to # of domio’s no matter the size, I always used the formula I use for any tenons. 1/3rd the width of the material is domino’s. I would divide the thickness by 3, and what ever got me closest to that third was what I went with. If it took 2 9’s or or 10’s what ever.

Worked well.
