Yes, except why take the first plunge all the way through where you might get tear out. Rather, just plunge a little deeper than needed to meet with where the second plunge will cut. Two blind plunges -- or shall I say, the first plunge blind and the second plunge partially blind.

But, not everyone can justify the purchase of a Domino. I'm glad if you found this of interest, and sorry if this was a distraction. Please share more of your jigs. I promise to try to be good. (where is that halo smiley when you need it?)
