More Festool Fun
« on: June 03, 2008, 08:24 AM »
I had a little fun last week on the job. I was working with another trim carp on a custom home building mantles and columns. The pic shows the final stages of the columns being routed with 3/4" flutes. As I was finishing I noticed a few of the exterior trim guys watching me. When I turned around they were hanging their heads and shuffling their feet muttering "I knew I should have been a finish carpenter". When I asked why they stated in unison " the tools are so kool!"

You just got to love it.  ;D

Life is too short for bad wine or cheap tools.

Sweet, but it must be a dustless version of the 1400 because I don't see the hose attached. ;D

OK you got me, I just finished recycling the dust bag with a razor knife and bulldog clips and forgot to replace the hose prior to the shot!

Nice job Chuck. I need to re-do the columns in front of my house. I may do a variation of what you have there. Thanks. (Now I need a Festool router, shuxs ;D)

The bitterness of poor quality, lingers long after the cheap price is forgotten.
