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.
