Rabbet joint + domino? on a plywood cabinet
« on: September 13, 2012, 04:54 PM »
Any ideas on how Kerf Design construct the corner joint on their cabinets? It appears to be a rabbet joint with 2 x through tenons. Any advice/ideas/links would be greatly appreciated. And would it be possible to use dominos in a similar manner (3/4" nom birch ply)?

Looks like the website you're linking to is having issues. I get an error.

Just glue the joint together first, then set the domino extra deep and plunge in from the outside corner.

I think you've nailed it. A rebate joint with a through tenon. Have a search on the FOG for domidrawers and you'll see some examples using dominoes.

Here's one of mine.

Actually, I suppose you could do that with a good router template for sufficiently small quantities.

With a domino 700, you build a jig for it to ride on the track (with LR32)  to space plunges (you'd need to overlap 2 or 3 to get wide slots
in the wall, then just router template the male pieces for the hanging accessories.

Without a 700, you could still make a router template (even use the MFS) somehow mounted no the LR32 system.

Thanks for the replies!

The Kerf Design link has been fixed. Yes it is CN routed, the through tennons on the corners appear rounded so as to fit the rounded slot on the other face - I can only assume routed by hand (not while on the CN).

I've never worked with dominos; just asking an opinion: would the aesthetics be acceptable on a cabinet, given it is a contemporary design? Drawers I can understand.

Fritter63: I was hoping the domino would assist in alignment while gluing. Is that possible?

The contrasting sipo dominoes look wonderful.

If you could clamp it together firmly while doing the domino....
