Vernon Neal, representing Festool, talked to club members about Festool's line of products.  Festool is made in Germany and each tool is assembled by one person and not by an assembly line.  Festool products are designed to carefully integrate together.  For example, the cases containing the tools are neatly stackable and the power cords are interchangeable.  Miter tables are the same height as other tables.

SHOW and TELL PROJECTS

         Steve Wavro has a lot to crow about with his finely crafted intarsia crane...Steve didn't duck his responsibilities when he used 32 pieces of wood from five different species of wood.  MDF is the backing and three coats of shellac for a finish.

A portable easel made from scraps and finished with Danish oil is Mark Bolinger's project.  It looks easy to make an easel, doesn't it? L1010264.JPG (140177 bytes) L1010265.JPG (114088 bytes) L1010292.JPG (187738 bytes) L1010291.JPG (163796 bytes)
