Building a 10mm shelve with domino DF 500
« on: March 03, 2018, 11:12 AM »

I want to build a shelve with 10mm plywood stock and 4x20 domino.

How do I set up the domino DF500 with 10mm thickness, the "classical" method from the user manual will not work with 10mm thickness.
I don't care if the domino is not exactly centered in the plywood thickness.

this is my shelve plan:

Thank you !

ok, this is what I came up with. Not sure if it's the easiest way...

On scrap pieces of the same size as my shelve, to assemble this T like that:

First, to center the mortise in my 10mm stock, I add a 5mm shim beneath the part. With the 10mm from the table to the bit center, the mortise is centered in the plywood.
I add a 16mm setup block on the side against the guide stop dog to be able to make 2 mortises in the part:

Which gives me this:

And I repeat the same on the second part:
(veritas 4 + 1 = 5mm shims)

Result is not bad:
