If you know anything about Festool, you know that organization is probably only second to dust extraction when it comes to our guiding design principles. The Systainer is the core of our organization system and offers many advantages over other solutions. In May 2013, we are introducing the newest components of our Systainer system: the new Sys-Roll dolly, the Sys-Toolbox open top Systainer, and a newly updated Sys-Cart.

Watch this time lapse video from Jory Brigham Designs showing the process of constructing one of this signature custom furniture pieces, the Organic Bed.

This video does a great job of illustrating how Festool power tools can be incorporated into your shop and projects. Once you see the finish project, we think you'll agree that the results are exceptional. Wonder how much one of these will set you back? A cool $6,200.

Here's what Jory had to say about his use of Festool power tools...

This month we're featuring Against the Grain Studios of Portland. Malachi Milbourn and his team turn what was old into something new, producing fine furniture from reclaimed lumber.

In this well produced video documentary, they rescue a 100 year old flagpole on top of one of Portland's historic buildings, the Yeon Building. The decades old fir is sawn, turned and crafted into a exquisite table which now resides inside of the building it once stood on looking over the city. After a run through the stationary drum sander, Malachi meticulously finish sands it with the Rotex RO 150.
