Title: A dominoed zigzag end table
Post by: Rocker on May 13, 2007, 05:42 AM
Here is a jarrah zigzag end table that I built with domino joinery to match my zigzag chairs. The leg miter joints are each aligned with a 6 x 40 mm domino, and locked by a single shop-made 6 x 40 mm through locking tenon, whose mortise was milled after the miter joint had been glued up with epoxy. Since the Domino's maximum milling depth is 28 mm, the bottom of the mortise had to be drilled out and cleaned up with a file. The feet, legs, and top rails of the table are made from 25 x 35 mm stock. The end-rail's miter joints are reinforced by 5 x 30 mm dominoes in horizontal mortises. The table's frame was easily able to bear my weight.

Rocker,
Excellent work, again!  Thanks for sharing this latest design with us.  You are definitely opening my eyes to even more potential Domino joinery.

Just one question -- what did your neighbors think of you standing out there on a zigzag platform?  Or are they used to seeing this sort of thing?

Matthew,

Minor eccentricities are well tolerated in Oz, and anyway most of my neighbors are horses, who have better things to think about.

In making the frame for a second table, I found that it was easier to rout the mortise for the locking tenon on my mortising jig (see my blog below for free plans of the jig) with a 3/8" spiral bit with a 2" cutting length; in this way I could rout the full depth of the through mortise.

HI Rocker,
It's great to have other Aussies contributing to this site and I have added your website to my favourites for a more in depth review when I get time. On first impression your work looks very impressive and its very generous of you to provide plans etc for others to enjoy.

cheers

Barry

Rocker,

I'm still waiting for the pic of you SITTING on the table with the other three guys in your lap.

LOL

Great table, BTW.  I'm adding it to the list of projects right after the zigzag chair.
