I keep wondering when Woodpeckers is going to make an OTT to make your own dominos!
If at first you don't succeed, redefine success!

When,,,,,,,, As soon as they do you will have a limited time to purchase it, wait an inordinate period of time. If successful, it will only be sold for a limited time,  never to be made again.

I was also interested in making my own domino.

Finding a bull nose router bit in metric (6, 8, 10 mm) is quite difficule but I found them here:

of course it is possible to use a somewhat smaller imperial bit which will make a small shoulder on the domino, but it may not be very esthetic for through domino.


To make the grooves, it is easy to just press the domino in a vice with grooved jaws.

Thanks for the reference.  I've been using a slightly oversized quarter round bit to get the small point on the edge, and that works well for lightly wedging the domino in if you get the size just right, but it also takes two passes and a finicky setup.  This looks easier - it would only take one pass.
