I had a recent post about using the Festool Domino as an alignment tool when edge-gluing boards. Here’s another shot of how I use it – this time adding a narrow 2″ border piece. The long grain edge joint doesn’t need any additional strength, but the dominoes help keep everything aligned as I put on the glue and clamps.
Note: The two dominoes spaced closely together are because I’m ripping a leaf off the end of the table at that location (right between them).
When I have narrow pieces to glue-up, I use BowClamps to help distribute clamping pressure.
