LOL, Not middle of the night, I just got up.
Actually my answer was in the same secret code as the information provided
concerning the particulars of the request. did your news reader not decifer
the info? ;~)
BTY I used the Domino yesterday to cut 192 mortise slots to receive 96 loose
I am starting the second stage of the bedroom project, head and foot board
and under bed storage. I need 3.5" x 3.5" posts for the corners of the head
and foot boards. And I need about 15 linear feet of post material. Pricing
solid oak at $40 a linear foot in that size prompted me to make hollow birch
plywood posts, I'll veneer with 3/16" thick white oak. Ill be doing some
resawing today. The dominos were used to build up the posts, I might have
gotten a little carried away. ;~)
I think it is part of Festool's plan to sell more Dominos tennons. LOL...
Their accessory "indexing wings" allow for up to 250 mm spacing between
dominos, IIRC. Of course you can free hand all the domino locations by
marking the stock like you would with a biscuit joiner, but how much fun
would that be?
From time to time I notice that HD carries [what appears to be] eight
foot 4X4 fir posts, straight-grained even. Could these have been veneered
or is the hollow birch plywood required for stability?

Yes, I have considered fence posts but "straight" and as you mentioned,
stability, is important to me. Plus I am at the moment planing on
attaching the head board and foot board to the under bed storage unit via
the posts. I want to use machine thread bolts and will probably use T-nuts
inside the posts to receive the bolts.
I naturally assumed fence post when you mentioned posts. I buy a lot of
fence posts. Actually the cedar fence posts are usually pretty straight
also. But, what I have done is "done" and they are very straight and
should remain that way.
