Domino Drawers
« on: May 13, 2018, 09:13 PM »
I was cruiseing U Tube looking for info on how to make domino drawers with thru dominos. I was watching how Sheen did his and was impressed. He use dogs to keep the drawer fronts straight and clamped the sides to the MFT. I thought that was a cool idea. Then he used a old dovetail jig to align them. I thought that was cool to. But I dont have a old dovetail jig.

So what I did was use my qwas dogs for the drawer faces and used a qwas rail dog as a stop. To easy

One photo is the flush faces useing a woodpeckers scale to show you the alignment. When using the festool  clamps to hold the drswer stock in place it makes for a bomb proof set up and quick

In terms of simplicity and repeatability, this alignment jig (originally intended for transferring dovetails) shines and it can be adapted for use on an MFT or any bench to mortise drawers:

The jig of any size to suit your work can be made from plywood or MDF and the butt joint can be pit together using dominos. The fence can be nailed, screwed or glued to the jig.

From the pictures, it looks like the top of the MFT and the side extrusion have to be perfectly at  90 degrees for this method to produce square joints. What am I missing?

I made a jig for that sole purpose when I built my shop cabinet drawers. The jig look similar to Chuck link with two Bessey Clamps. I used it this week end to make some clamp racks  [big grin]

I'll put a picture tonight.

Better patent it first Hans. Someone in Canada will copy it and Tool Nut will sell the crap out of it.
