Mortise and Tenon Joinery Applications.

Panel, frame, face, and even beveled joints are all possible with the Domino joining system. The unique cutting action and adjustable hole widths make loose tenon joinery faster, easier, and more accurate than ever before. The Domino tenon is designed to fit precisely into the mortise created by the tool. These tenons are rotation-proof, and have glue expansion slots designed into their surface to ensure a good, strong joint. Stronger than a dowel or biscuit, the Domino system tenons will soon become your preferred method for joinery.

Aligning boards is as simple as making the first cut, and then using the optional cross-stop with aligning flaps to index off of surfaces for perfectly spaced mortises. Mortises can easily be made in thin or round stock using the optional trim stop or handrail fence. Experience the Domino and join the revolution!
