I used the Domino to build a step stool

About 12 days ago I started a project to try out my new Domino loose tennon joiner. I decided on a 3 step, step stool and used scraps that were no wider than 3". This gave me an opportunity to use the loose tennons to align and reinforce plain panel glue ups and offset skirts. The Domino worked great. I posted pictures on a.p.b.w. of the "different looking" step stool. Please take a look let me know what you think.

You can view them by going to the news group, alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking
The pictures do not show any of the actual tennons rather just a small project I built using the Domino for the first time.

"apbw" is a nickname for abpw (don't ask). It's a newsgroup news:alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking where binary files (photos, drawings, etc) can be posted and viewed.

the bottom of the page gives some project examples and there are links to other DOMINO info - like manuals - the one that comes with the tool is a joke.

Had a look at the website Charlie. Are the bits for the Domino carbide tipped or just high speed steel? Any opinion on their maintaining sharpness?

IIRC the bits are good for 10,000+ cuts unless cutting into end grain.

Some of the literature I've seen says they're carbide on the ends - but I can't tell on the ones I got. But given that replacements are $25 to $30, the price of a good mid-range router bit, it's not a big issue - for me.
These things are not something you can / should try and sharpen yourself. There are Eleven, count 'em - ELEVEN facets to sharpen - this is not something for the Drill Doctor and difinitely not something to try and sharpen freehand. You can send them in for sharpening but I haven't seen any prices for that service - or the turn around time.
My Insane Garbage Cans Surround project has me up to about 500 mortises, half in end grain and so far so good, still cutting clean, no evidence of burning.
Picked up the rest of the wood for the Insane Garbage Cans Surround project today. Only had to go through maybe a pallet worth of "boards" to find the ten 5/8" x 5 1/2" I need. Still had to settle for a few knots - that won't show, and a quarter to have of the face being sapwood. Trying to figure out which board should go where when you've got seven of them that have to work together is fun - then it gets tedious. But if I'm going to have to walk by it several times a day - I want it to be pleasing to look at - and to serve as a reminder of a good project I can take some pride in. If you're gonna do it - do it well - and if you go a little ape shit and get carried away - well it's the journey, not the destination right? This will be a great Post Card from the Journey.

They are carbide tipped and the junction is quite easy to see. On the 10mm bit it is the last 6mm, on the 5mm bit the tip is about 4.5mm long. they can be sharpened up to 3 times or -1mm whichever is less
Festool says that the bits will last about 4,000 mortises when milling into the end grain of hardwood and 15,000 when milling into the side grain of soft wood
