Photos by author I have to admit that as a hobbyist woodworker of modest means, my Domino purchase was a bit of a budget breaker.I decided that I would reduce the total cost of ownership of this tool by making my own tenons using scrap wood.
Penny wise and pound foolish you say? I think not.When I mentioned this strategy to a couple members of the WWGOA editorial team, it led to some lively debate as to whether this could really deliver actual savings when the 'dollars to hassle ratio' was taken into account.
Ultimately, I believe it will be up to each individual to decide this, but I have found it extremely quick and simple to convert scrap material into perfectly sized floating tenons.In a simple timed test using wood that had been relegated to my kindling pile, I was able to make 100 tenons (6mm x 40mm) in about 15 minutes.
That's about $10 worth of tenons, making my pay-off roughly $40/hour.OK, I'll never get rich with this program, but these savings will add up over the years and I will also never have to put a project on hold because I ran out of tenons.
