You really go FAST! :)

Nice work!

I like the way you precut the curved ends before completing the final long & easy cut… COOL technique!!

COOL router setup to round-over edges instead of using rasps, etc. etc. Saved a lot of time… and was BETTER in the long run!

Was also COOL the way you made the TWO legs from One Piece by making the final cut to get the two legs… All dado-type jointery cuts were more Matching & aligned by doing it that way! Very COOL!

I did not see what mask you used while sanding, etc.

I did notice the sander you used… and NO sawdust being seen…
What kind of Festool sander is it that you were using? Is that the only sander you use? If not, what other sanders do you use?

COOL way you use the Band saw… reminded me of how Maloof used it… Scary at times… but, SO COOL!

Thank you!

I just wear a stnadard dust mask and have my Jet air filter on which is mounted over my bench. The sander is a Festool RO 90 which has amazing dust collection.

Have your say...
