Bent loft ladder using domino
« on: August 01, 2022, 05:32 PM »
Hi,
I want to make a bent loft ladder. The ladder itself is at 12 degrees and at the top I want to put vertical handrails. After a lot of reading I'm wondering if the domino would be the correct tool to join this angle.
Many thanks
Phil

If your question is about whether the DF can do angled joinery for a ladder, then the answer is yes:

Absolutely. It may take some creative fixturing to position it properly, but it is very possible.

@Philr99 I posted about a domino jig for doing a ladder a few years ago if you're curious: https://www.festoolownersgroup.com/festool-jigs-tool-enhancements/domino-ladder-jig
