The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino. 

      I have orders for a few dining tables and chairs.  I have made one prototype chair, while I have all the tools to make angled tenons etc., the time it takes me is ungodly.  Having made quite a few farmhouse tables and benches for clients, it only seemed like good business to offer chairs vs. buying unfinished chairs to finish to match, but in order to make money I need to be able to make them in a certain time frame, this tool was my answer for that and it has performed just as I was hoping.  I have also used it to make kitchen cabinet doors to inset glass (glass doors I always reinforced with a dowel in the corners or a spline) and has done a phenomenal job.  All my previous benches and tables used mortise and tenon joinery, this tool will definitely speed that process up by at least 3-4 hours on each project.  

     The Domino is much beefier than it looks on the internet and is of quality, it cuts dominoes with ease and many different sizes; speeds production for sure.  This tool operates just as advertised, the cut tolerances are perfect, for that, this tool is worth every bit of 5 stars.

      The price?  Insanity, as with all Festool products, they are not cheap by any stretch, but I think, just as with all of my tools, pick and choose the "needs" over the "wants", go from there.  At $1400 for the Domino and a Systainer with a collection of Dominoes, I have a lot of chairs to make before it pays for itself, but, the time it saves me, is a little extra time that I can spend with my family or doing other things.

check amazon.de next time you need accessories such as the domino filled sustainer.  It's about 100 cheaper after taxes and delivery.  Took about a week to arrive.

rollaway pantry

My first Kreg project.  Our kitchen is small and has no pantry, so we needed someplace to store food.  It made sense to use the space between the refrigerator and wall.  It's a 7" space, so I used 1x6" pine lumber.  I used a Kreg 320 jig, not just…Continue
