I'm glad this thread has been started as even though I like making mortice and tenon joints sometimes I want to get quicker results. I too had been pondering over Domino or XL and saw the many (costly) options available for the already very expensive XL (a bit like buying a BMW - by the time you've added all the options on you can end up paying nearly twice the base model costs!). I think the DF500 will probably suffice for me when I get sufficent funds as that's not cheap either!
I've found that there were a few issues since the update in Chrome on a PC that were resolved by clearing the browser cache. Specifically make sure you do this:- Select: Obliterate the following items from the beginning of timeCheck Cookies and other site and plug-in dataCheck Cached images and filesCheck Hosted app data If you use other browsers Internet Destroyer, Safari, Opera, Firefox or anything else on any other platform (Mac, iPad, Linux) you might also benefit from clearing the cache on that too. Can't help with Tapatalk as I gave that up long ago.
It's roughly 24" when on top of my modular saw horses. The saw horses can have different "legs" made to suit any height though (the saw horses are made from 3/4" plywood) and the design is below. It doesn't look very strong but looks are deceptive it easily taking my bulk and is very stable when loaded. I have the build of the saw horse here http://www.woodtalkonline.com/topic/16909-knock-down-saw-horses-and-low-assembly-table/#comment-170038. I also use it without the torsion box top as a platform to break down sheet goods. And the torsion box assembly table here http://www.woodtalkonline.com/topic/18676-a-low-assembly-table/ The thing I find good about having the top of the project a little lower is it makes fitting parts like drawers, scraping glue squeeze out from what was previously way in the air and lots of other related things a lot easier. The down side (no pun intended) of course is anything on the project needing finessing 2 feet off the ground means having to sit at a chair (or stoop) but I thought lowering was the better of two evils. I have found that I get less upper body problems, no more back ache and more productivity.
BTW the contrast between the two woods you have chosen looks awesome Shane. When you get some finish on it'll look superb.
