Every so often a tool comes along that completely changes the way woodworking is done and the original Domino was just that type of tool when it was introduced in 2007. We realized that there were bigger projects and applications that needed to be tackled, so we will be introducing the new Domino XL DF 700 in 2012, which, just like the original Domino, makes mortise and tenon joinery a breeze but on a larger scale. Watch a video to see it in action!

We’re looking for 25 of the best industry professionals (carpenters, remodelers, furniture and cabinet makers, etc.) in the United States and Canada to put the Domino XL through its paces and provide us with feedback and share how it fits into your shop to help tackle your most demanding projects. For those who are selected, we will send you the Domino XL and an ample supply of tenons months before its North American introduction.

Are you interested? If so, send us an email at and tell us why you think we should select you!

The following information must be provided at a minimum for consideration in our Domino XL test program:

- Are you currently a Festool customer?
- What is your profession, what type of work do you do?
- What types of projects do you have in mind or scheduled for which the Domino XL would be well suited?
- Why should you be selected?
- Your name and contact information.

We would encourage you to share a link to your website, photos or video that showcases previous work that you’ve done. The more detailed information you provide, the better your chances of being selected. Selection will not be based on whether you are an existing Festool or Domino owner, as we are looking for a mix of new and existing customers for this test.

Entries must be received no later than December 31st, 2011. Festool will notify selected participants no later than January 31st, 2012 with additional information and to make arrangements for shipping the product.

For additional video of the Domino XL in action, check out this thread ( on the Festool Owners Group forum where Peter Parfitt from England did a very thorough three part video review.

Thanks and good luck,
Shane Holland

Hi Shane , Thanks for the YouTube link.
It appears to be a great tool , but , I’m not a professional , so I don’t qualify for your promotion.
I have to wonder what Charles Neil would have to say about it : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Have your say...
