Are the solid Beech Dominos suitable for exterior use? Are there exterior dominos?

We recommend when using the solid beech Domino loose tenons for exterior applications that you use a two-part epoxy like West System or System Three, being careful to coat all surfaces in order to help minimize the impact of moisture intrusion.
Domino Sipo hardwood tenons are also available, and are great for exterior applications like furniture, shutters, gates, decks, trim, even boat building.
Sipo is a tropical hardwood similar to mahogany and is significantly more resistant to moisture, decay, fungi and termites.
Sipo tenons are legally imported from cultivated plantations.

What are Domino tenons made of?

Domino tenons are made out of solid Beech, a very dense, strong hardwood.
They have tiny glue pockets embossed on the face to accommodate glue and ridges along the edges for a perfect fit.
Domino Sipo hardwood tenons are currently available, and are great for exterior applications like furniture, shutters, gates, decks, trim, even boat building.

Will the Domino tenons swell in humid conditions? How do I best protect Domino tenons against swelling?

Domino tenons are made from solid beech wood, not compressed beech shavings like a biscuit joint, so they are far less susceptible to swelling from humidity.
Moreover, Domino tenons are treated to prevent swelling.

Which size Domino tenon should I use for which thickness of material?

Generally, the Domino thickness should be one third the thickness of the work piece. When joining

How do you glue the Domino tenons?

For best results, squeeze yellow glue, polyurethane or epoxy into the mortise and use a brush or q-tip to swab the sides.
Lightly brush each face and along the edge of the Domino tenon and insert it.
Brush glue along the face of your joint, clamp and allow to set.

There are 6 different size Domino tenons, but only 3 width settings on the machine, how come?

The width setting on the Domino joiner is not what determines which size Domino tenon you use; the Domino cutter and the depth setting determine which Domino tenon you use.
The five different size Domino cutters (D4, D5, D6, D8 & D10 millimeters) correspond to the thicknesses of the different size Domino tenons. There are six Domino tenon sizes

Can the Domino cutters be resharpened?

Domino cutters can be resharpened as many as 3 times.
After 3 sharpenings they become too short to mortise the necessary depth.
Domino cutters will bore between 4,000 and 15,000 mortises before they require sharpening.
On average, 4,000 mortises into end grain on hardwood, and 15,000 mortises into side grain on soft wood.
