The Festool Domino DF500 provides a quick way to create floating tenon joints in a variety of applications. Key uses are in cabinetry, frames, building table tops, joining table legs to aprons, drawers, and boxes.

Track saws are a great tool for making long, accurate cuts when you need to bring the tool to the workpiece. This is especially useful on sheet goods and large panels.


Interested in a wood joinery option that is straightforward and repeatable?  Joinery based on the Festool DF500 can, when properly set up, make quick and accurate joints in a wide variety of applications.  In this hands-on class we will focus on creating four basic joints types: butt, miter, side (table top), and cabinet.

In addition to the Domino, this class will also cover use of our Makita track saw. Track saws are a powerful tool for making long, accurate cuts, especially on materials that are too unwieldy to cut on the table saw.

Topics we will cover on the track saw include:

  • Setting up the track
  • Using the proper support for the workpiece (e.g. foam board)
  • Properly adjusting plunge depth
  • Properly adjusting the grip of the saw on the track rails
  • Making standard cuts (90 degree and bevel cuts)
  • Making plunge cuts
