Doug Mooberry builds incredible American furniture inspired by antiques, but adds his unique Kinloch Woodworking creative touches to every piece. Founded in 1982, Kinloch Woodworking has assembled a massive portfolio full of examples of awe-inspiring woodworking prowess. As stated on their website, "Details Do Matter" and attention to those details is important and what makes the furniture they produced collectable.
In June, we asked SysNotes subscribers to provide us with testimonials about their experiences with the Festool TS plunge cut saw and guide rail system. We would like to thank everyone who participated in the contest and submitted a TS Success Story. It's always a pleasure for us to hear about how Festool is making a positive influence on your quality of workmanship, ease of use and profitability.
We recently met with Rue Ann Flanders, President of the Women's Woodworking Guild of Indiana (WWGI), to talk about the emerging role of women in woodworking. WWGI consists of a group of women in the central Indiana area who share an interest in working with wood in various capacities. They share skills within their group and seek to learn new skills from sources outside of the group. The guild has been involved in many community programs including Habitat for Humanity, art displays at the Indiana Art Center, participation in the Indiana Woodworking Show and more. WWGI can certainly serve as a model in other communities where women seek to find peers with whom to share their passion for woodworking.
In 2007, Festool released the DOMINO joiner and it has been revolutionizing the way mortise and tenon joinery has been done ever since. The Domino follows our mantra of Faster, Easier, Smarter and offers the best solution to joinery available.
Jerry Work, a well respected member of the Festool community and author of numerous Festool tutorials, recently was given the opportunity to review the new Parallel Guide Set (Product No. P00108) which launches on March 1st.
Jerry prepared an 11-page pictorial tutorial for the new Parallel Guide Set that we would like to share with you. From what's in the box, to set up, to demonstration and tips, this tutorial is a great resource for anyone considering adding the Parallel Guide to their Festool arsenal. In Jerry's own words, "This tutorial shows how these impressive guides can elevate guided rail cutting to the point that there is little need for a table saw any more".
We encourage you to visit "The Dovetail Joint", Jerry's website, to peruse the numerous other Festool documents and tutorials he has produced.
