(was responding to another thread in another forum on FOG about a wall cabinet.)
I've included full scale illustrations of how to work out the DOMINO settings for the two set backs/reveals merely to show how they can be calculated numerically, without ANY layout lines, in most cases in integer millimeters - no fractions to deal with.
By the time I finish this garbage surround project I should be thinking in DOMINO numeric values. And THAT is one reason why this is such a revolutionary tool. It literally changes how you think about joints and tool set ups. I'm also coming to appreciate the metric system.
Re: Racoon. Opossum, Coyote proof - I'm assuming you mean how to avoid The Splotchies when finishing.
Redwood can be VERY prone to The Splotchies because it is a soft porous wood that often has grain running every which way. But by selecting quarter sawn boards, splotchiness is greatly reduced, though not always eliminated entirely. A "spit coat" of dewaxed shellac followed by a very light sanding with 320 grit can greatly reduce The Splotchies. But when you get a little curly figure in a redwood board, why hide it?
It's also nice to know that I'm not the only one who starts with a simple project and compicates the heck out of it along the way to completing it. Maybe I should just kiss off KISS.
