Question re: roof for workshop renovation - 2 replies

I know this is crazy... - 4 replies

I hope that this doesn’t come across the wrong way, but my granddad sent me the Festool EQ 1400 router as a gift, and I want to find a project that will really be a skill building project for the router and myself. I know that seems ridiculous and even crazy that I was given such a nice tool, but I would love any suggestions or directio...
