Create strong mortise and tenon joinery quickly and easily anywhere with the Domino Joiner. Ideal for furniture, cabinetry, trim, and anywhere else strong wood joinery is required.
Fast and simple
Using built-in presets for depth and width, mortises can be cut in seconds for a perfect fit of Domino tenons regardless of material or grain direction.
Either the adjustable fence or bottom of the base can be used for registration in setting the height of the mortise, and the fence height can be set with the stepped stop for common material thicknesses, or with the scale. Lateral positioning is achieved using the sprung stop paddles, accessory Cross Stops, or by using the hairline cursor on the fence.
Accurately-placed mortises and tight-fitting tenons ensure accurate relative positioning, so edges and faces that are supposed to be flush really are flush. This makes mitre joints especially easy to assemble and clamp without specialized corner clamps.
Ready to use Domino tenons
Made of extremely strong rift-sawn beech or sipo mahogany for rot resistance, Domino floating tenons are precisely sized to fit mortises created by the Domino Joiner. The embossed faces hold glue and ribs on the edges allow a pressure fit against the sides of a narrow mortise. They are rotation-proof and offer more glue surface than dowels or biscuits.
Make mortises from 4 to 10 millimetres
The size of the mortise is controlled by the cutter installed. The included 5 millimetre bit is ideal for 3/4 sheet goods, and optional 4, 6, 8, and 10 millimetre cutters can make mortises ideal for 1/2 to 1-3/16 inches thick material.
Exceptional dust collection
Paired with a dust extractor, chips are effectively removed as they are created which keeps the bit cool to prolong its lifespan and keep the workplace clean.
Compatible with knock-down connectors
Festool has developed a line of knock-down connectors for use with the Domino joiners, ideal for creating anything that needs to be broken down for transport or storage.
