DOMINO - More Changes To Method Of WorK

After a few experiences with the fun and games of finishing a piece after it all glued up, squeeze out cleaned up and a little sanding where necessary, the light bulb goes off. "You know, if I'd applied the finish to the parts BEFORE glue up - life would've been a lot simpler. No worries about finish sag. No runs, no drips - no errors - to use a baseball phrase.".
However - if you go that route you have to be VERY careful not to get finish on / in the joinery for fear of weakening the joint.
BUT - WHAT IF . . . the joinery could be cut AFTER the finish has been applied and had time to cure? For most finishes, glue squeeze out would be easy to take care of - AND - no worrying about a little bit of glue you didn't even see - 'til you applied the finish.
Yet another, subtle little capability the DOMINO makes possible - and easy.
I keep "discovering" more about how the DOMINO changes what, how and when I do things while making a piece. Have you noticed any not so obvious ways it's changed how you work?

More good Domino info. Thanks. You need to be hooked up with a ww mag that will give you your own monthly/bimonthly column.......... The Domino Corner by CharlieB Yeah, that's the ticket! Wait a minute.... if that happened we would no longer get that info here in the newsgroup. OK, scratch the Domino Corner.

No problem ( no worries mate - for the Oz reader).

Never happen. I'm never going to work for anyone again - ever. Been there. Done that. Got the T-shirt. Hell, I'm never going to "work" again - period. If it ain't fun I'm gone.

Maybe Leon wants to take that job.
Leon?

Have you already discounted Waxilit??? The trouble with refinishing and then cutting the wood is that you often scratch the finish when cutting or assembling. Or, I switched to TB III simply for the color that it dries to. It dries to a color close to the wood color unlike the taxi cab yellow. If working with Walnut and darker woods I use Dark wood glue. If you miss a spot it seldom shows.
Additionally I have better luck if I DO NOT glue around the mortise hole. This area tends to have the most squeeze out.

Hey, the DOMINO doesn't do all the joinery I use. It's not THE ANSWER, but gets pretty close for a lot of furniture sized loose tenon mortise tenon joinery.

There's nothing on the DOMINO that'll scratch anything and if there were a little sand paper or jewelers file work would take care of the potential problem.

Got some of the dark brown stuff for just that application. Picked up some "NEW Formula, Elmer's STAINABLE Wood Glue" - "weather proof, for interior/exterior use, long set time, contains real wood fibers for superior staining and sanding".ANSII Type II Water Resistand (not for continuous submersion or bleow water line use). Haven't tried to stain a piece I've used it on - a future To Do to add to my list.

I'm assuming you mean applying glue to the INSIDE of the mortise as opposed to on the end of the end grain part. If you don't get glue on the inside faces of the mortise, and only apply glue to the outside face of the tenon, loose or "real", I'd worry about it being scraped off the tenon on insertion - the fit is pretty snug.

No, I am talking about refinishing before even cutting a board to length. If you are onlytalking about finishing before using the Domino, I agree.

Absolutely apply glue to the inside of the mortise, apply glue sparingly to the end/face around the outside of the mortise hole.
