Extending Trestle Table

I was recently commissioned to build a Trestle table.  The only issue is that the client wanted the table to extend and accept a leaf in the middle.  This is tricky as trestle tables generally aren’t able to extend due to the stretcher that goes between the two leg assemblies.  Because of this I came up with a rail and guide system that allows the top to slide apart with out the base moving at all.  Take a look at the video to see how I built the table.

Better Breadboard Ends with the Festool Domino

I like to use my Domino.  It makes life in the shop so much easier and more efficient.  Very important things when you are trying to make a living building furniture.  So, I try to find as many uses for it as possible.  

I’ve used my Domino for breadboard ends for sometime now and I made a video on the process a few years ago.  I’ll link it below.  But recently I’ve come up with a better way to do breadboard ends with the Festool Domino.  Check the video below to see the new process and the video below it to see the old one.
