Festool Domino Class

Sign me up as well.

Yes! @David has been working to finish up the curriculum and is pretty close to done on this one. We’ll be starting out with 2 students per class to get a feel for what the right number of seats will be. @David can share more details over the next week or so.

Thank y’all so much! I’ll be first on the signup!

On Thursday, June 23 I am going to meet with a member who has volunteered to help me test out the Domino DF500 class. Please note that Festool sells two versions of the Domino a DF500 and a much larger DF700 and Asmbly has a DF500.

Topics covered:

Key operational parts of the DF500 for setup and teardown
Using this Metric tool in an Imperial environment
Concepts of floating tenon joinery
Making a simple butt joint
Making a mitre joint at 45 degrees
Joining boards to make panels for tabletops - etc
Joining a table leg to an apron with and without reveal

If time permits / optional topics:
Waterfall joints
Drawers with exposed dominoes

Once I review the class there will be a more formalized writeup. My plan is to offer the class once every two weeks with a maximum of two attendees. If there is enough interest then I can increase the frequency of the offering.

I am open to any suggestions on content. If there is anyone who might want to teach the class going forward please reach out to me.



Hi David,
If you would find it helpful, I’d be willing to take an “observational only” role in your class to offer additional feedback on the curriculum and methods taught. I’ve done this professionally in the academics and sports.


Domino Class is now open for registration on Saturday, July 2 with room for two attendees. If this fills up quickly then I can add more sessions as my schedule allows. Once we see how popular this class is then if anyone wants to take over teaching the class then let me know.

Signed up!

Missed this discussion.
I would be happy to give course on Festool Domino too.



Hey Everyone! I thought I’d reply here since this seems to be the last thread discussing Domino classes. Are there any plans for classes in the near future? Would love to get familiar with the tool and be able to use it on some upcoming projects.

Hi Daniel - We have not planned any Domino classes this month as the Domino classes in September did not have interest. If you would like to take a Domino class in the next few weeks I can contact the instructor to see if he is available. Let me know what are some good dates / times for you.


Hey @David - I am certainly down for taking the class in the next few weeks if it is available. During the week I’m fairly flexible during the day/morning as I work right next to the shop but evenings can get tricky as I have a toddler and pregnant wife. I can make weekends work too but will be traveling two of the weekends in November. The next three weekends are available for me

I would be willing to give a class too. Will find out the logistics of getting it set up.

I’d love to learn too!

I discussed with David Disco. He has been giving the classes to date, and has a well worked out curriculum. So thought it best to leave the next class to him, unless he has no availability to do so soon.
I will check with him when he can set this up.


Hi David
Not sure if you also got message from Stevied479 expressing interest in domino class. I told him you would be setting up a class soon.
Incidentally, I have been doing some work on curriculum for preparing for finishing, to assist with the sanding class. Will touch bases with you soon.

If you would like an intro to the Domino Joiner give me a couple of dates / times and I can set up a session.
