Another Domino selection question
« on: April 12, 2015, 11:28 PM »
Rather, Domino orientation. Building a simple bench, 2 layers of 3/4" play laminated, legs, and 3x1/5" stretcher.
Planning to attach stretcher to legs with 2 10x50s to prevent sag and racking. I have three questions about best want to do this.
a) Vertical or horizontal orientation?


b) If vertical, best to align with pencil marks? Piece is too narrow to use the tabs. If horizontal, I believer 2 fence settings is simple, or using a spacer.
c) This is my first time with mid-panel dominos. I still can't visualize the best way to transfer locations to the legs. Tight setting on stretcher and loose on legs?

I followed all the instructions for attaching the images, hope this works!

3"x1.5" stretcher? 

Vertical.

Draw the stretcher on the leg, mark the Domino locations, use a board to align the Domino using the base as your reference faced. The offset is 10 mm.

99% of my work is tight/tight. I your case go tight stretcher, loose leg.
