For a contest of Tooltechnic Systems nv/Festool Belgium I wanted to show how accurate Festool machines are and use all their possibilities.
The ultimate challenge for this was to use these tools to make a copy of itself.
As the TS55 is the tool most used I decided to make myself an extra one…in plywood.

pay extra attention to the soundtrack as it’s made from only sounds produced by my Festool machines.

enjoy the movie!
