A Week In The Workshop 205



Hi everyone; I’m about 100% better than I was in the previous video, but far, far from 100% in myself, so in this weeks exciting episode there’s a bit of chat about the move home, a quick preview of the kitchen extension, and a couple of member questions answered along with some background on podcast revenue generation, hidden costs like hosting.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments and thoughts, enjoy the rest of the weekend and I’ll catch you in the midweek when hopefully I’ll be a bit more myself again.


Cheers for now


Peter

Man, that kitchen is really spectacular, especially with the large glass doors letting in all that sunlight! In the final, final stretch now! Excellent demonstration using dominos in end grain on a large board, that's going to be useful in my future builds, good stuff.

After an overnight think, I’ve got a request.

The terrific technique for the Mid-Panel joint should be revealed to the World Wide Web!

Peter’s technique of using the Domino’s base as a reference plane is anti-intuitive for many of us.

Its a selfish suggestion so that I can easily find it with YouTube’s search box within the 10MW channel. Also, I can refer my Domino buddies to the video.


Knowing myself, I‘d be trying to find the technique in the future with phrases such as “Domino mid panel” or “Domino cat scratch”.


Next time our daughter visits, I will ask if her cats need a new scratching post. 😀

A caution — On the Domino, first TURN ON the Domino, then switch the mortise width.


I heard the click-change, then the machine being turned on afterwards.


Peter is under the weather — perhaps that’s a warning not to use tools?


Kitchen layout is awesome, lots of daylight streaming in.


Nice technique you taught us on referencing off the base of the Domino.


Sedge had hammered into my brain to never let the Domino base sit on the bench.


You always find another way to skin that cat!


Thanks for the brilliant method on embedding Dominos into the middle of a panel. 😀

Yes, that’s always been the Festool commendation re switching waggle-width with the tool running - a point I make in the old 10years of Domino videos - and yes, I’ve always regarded it as a recommendation not an absolute. Much like plunging the saw to depth before starting to make the cut, I’ve done it the ‘other’ way thousands of times without any issues. Sedge is of course, a Festool USA employee, so will be toeing the company line on all this; I feel that if we’re adult enough to buy the tools then we’re adult enough to figure out how to best use them ourselves.


And thanks, yes, kitchen is a great space, looking forwards to finally getting it…

Kitchen is amazing… it’s good to know you’ve got some wine chillers in there so you can quaff all that champagne from your YouTube millions 😂 (although you must only be a couple of years away from gross revenue of 1M from everything 10MW which is phenomenal achievement!)


If your kids bless you with some grandchildren then that space beyond the kitchen and into the garden is going to make for a perfect grandparent daycare / babysitting service 😂

The kitchen and house refurb looks great, bet you’re glad it’s all (almost) over. The delays and turmoil will soon be a distant memory


The demo with the domino was very interesting. I wouldn’t think a biscuit joint would be anywhere near as strong as there’s more slop in the joint (ok for glue to fill) but less penetration of the two surfaces by the joining biscuit so it’s not as “deep” a fixing.

I was trying to work out if this was possible to do with the loose tenon jig. The end piece holes are easy enough but even disassembling the jig you’ve not got the same way of bearing off - it’d be out by the thickness of…

Yes that's what I thought. You can reference the mid panel slot off a pencil line for the edge of the slot. But only takes a fraction off on the pencil line for it all to become very tight to fit together. The domino better definitely
