Reclaiming a 100 Year Old Flagpole.

Projects by You

 

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.

New Festool SysLite LED Worklamp

Available on June 1st, 2012.

See what you've been missing thanks to 170° of even light dispersion that goes where you do. Whether your work takes you under a cabinet or crawlspace, or to an attic or the outdoors, the SysLite's robust build and shock-resistant body is easy to carry and designed to perform when you need it most. Six high-efficiency, LED bulbs will provide even, consistent light for up to four hours on a single charge, longer when paired with a compatible Festool cordless drill battery, and without interruption when plugged directly to a power source.

New SysLite LED Worklamp

Compact and Rugged - Built to handle the toughest you can throw at it, the SysLite features a rugged housing and nearly indestructible LED lights, so you won't ever have to worry about breaking or replacing bulbs.

Unbelievably Bright - The SysLite delivers an even, balanced light source, casting a brilliant and consistent white light, so you can examine the smallest details in close quarters, or take a few steps back to look at the big picture.

Multiple Power Options - The SysLite features a long-lasting internal battery as its main power source, but can be easily charged or run with the included wall and car chargers, or used with a compatible Festool battery as an auxiliary power source to the internal battery.

New Surfix Finish Applicator

 

Available on June 1st, 2012 in the United States. Coming soon to Canada.

Final finishing doesn't have to be difficult, time-consuming, or messy. The Festool Surfix tackles one of the hardest-to-nail finishing tasks with ease, dispensing oil directly from the squeezable handle and into the sponge, so you can control the amount and the distribution of oil across your surface without covering your hands or clothes. This self-contained system not only provides quick and even distribution but also reduces costs associated with throwaway rags and brushes.
