Domino Crib Sheet - Screw Holding

The ongoing crib sheet theme... another installment!

This is a quick demonstration of how to use a Domino to significantly improve screw holding in man-made materials like MDF (in the demo), waferboard, particle board, or MCP (commonly called 'Melamine').

The technique is pretty low-tech, but helps a lot when making things like cabinet lowers or other utility box that's later adorned with countertops.

    First off, I love Spax.
    Second, I liked the checking of the hand after you pulled the "dominoed screw" out. It was like you did a finger count.

    Every now and then, Brian, I like to make sure I can count to ten. Was a moment when I wondered if I scraped my hand and was gonna be all bleedin' on camera and not know it.
