Post for island
« on: April 20, 2018, 09:47 AM »
Started a Kitchen island this week. This is 2 post that I built. The corners are all  mitered and joind with dominos.
Now it time to spray some primer.

Wow that's some nice structure. What material thickness you used and what angle you bore the dominos?

Good job  [big grin]

Thanks Mario. Everything was built with 3/4" mdf and I bored 4mm dominos at 45 degrees. It makes gluing and clamping a breeze when nothing moves.

Awesome, I need more details  [wink]

1- You used the standard 5mmx30mm?
2- How deep you set the cutter to 15mm from the 18mm MDF?
3- What spacing between tenons, I would guess 250mm?

I really really like them, please show a picture with the finish on it and what you use to seal the MDF.

Thanks, Mario

I used the 4mmx17mmx20mm dominos. With the 4mm cutter you need to set the depth of cut to 20mm. The fence is set at 45 degrees with the blue plastic support bracket attached.
As for the spacing, beats me. Randomly inserted 3 - 5 dominos per joint.
For the primer, I just sprayed the first coat of Duralaq Undercoater and will be spraying the second coat after lunch. The profile on the panels were done with the Freud 99-264 rail and stile set which Rona has on clearance. Regular price $109 and I got them for $27.99. I bought 3 sets at that price. Rona in Ottawa may still have some.
