Back in January, we selected professionals from hundreds of applicants to become test users for the Domino XL. They were supplied with a Domino XL and tenons in advance of the official launch so that we could learn more about how it fit into their shops and what advantages it offered.

The reactions from our focus group has been overwhelming positive and the advantages offered by the Domino XL over other types of joinery were apparent. Below we're including links to some of the blogs, forum posts, YouTube video and more that have been supplied by the group. If you're interested in the Domino XL, these links offer very good information from professionals who make their living with their tools, just like you.

In the spirit of full disclosure, our focus group was supplied with the products for testing purposes. At the end of the test period, they will be offered a discount to purchase the Domino XL if they choose to keep it. Some posts are from editors that were also provided with the tool for evaluation purposes.

Seeking Test Users for the New Domino XL

Wednesday, November 9, 2011 | Reader Comments | New Products

Domino XL

Every so often a tool comes along that completely changes the way woodworking is done and the original Domino was just that type of tool when it was introduced in 2007. We realized that there were bigger projects and applications that needed to be tackled, so we will be introducing the new Domino XL DF 700 in 2012, which, just like the original Domino, makes mortise and tenon joinery a breeze but on a larger scale. Watch a video to see it in action!

We're looking for 25 of the best industry professionals (carpenters, remodelers, furniture and cabinet makers, etc.) in the United States and Canada to put the Domino XL through its paces and provide us with feedback and share how it fits into your shop to help tackle your most demanding projects. For those who are selected, we will send you the Domino XL and an ample supply of tenons months before its North American introduction.
