Green Goods: The Importance of Superior Joinery

Friday, June 13, 2014 | Reader Comments | Joiners

Green Goods


Like many of you, Brian Robertson's first Festool power tool was the TS 55 Track Saw. Brian is the co-owner of Green Goods, an environmentally friendly building supply store, focusing on interior products. He immediately recognized the quality, efficiency and cleanliness gained through the use of the TS 55 and its potential to offer him a competitive advantage.

Based on his positive experience with the TS 55, Brian sought out Festool's solution for joinery when he had a project requiring assembly that could not be easily done with the traditional methods: pocket hole screws, biscuits or dowels. Shortly after beginning to use the FestoolDomino Joiner, he found other uses for it that increased productivity, such as table tops. With the Domino Joiner, he was able to assemble table tops three to four times faster than using a biscuit joiner.

Brian says he works hard for his tools, so he wants his tools to work hard for him. That's why he chooses Festool. Watch this video of Brian sharing his experiences with his Festool power tools, including the Domino Joiner.
