With over 125 entries in our video contest, we're pleased to announce our winners and to thank everyone who participated. You can view our top 10 entries on YouTube, or look below for links to the individual videos.
Our grand prize winner is Paul Fuller of Fuller Banjo for his testimonial video. Paul is a luthier and furniture maker and he really appreciates the advantages of Festool sanders and HEPA dust extractors. Did you notice that the bench he's sitting on while giving his comments on Festool is the same bench he's building in the video? Pretty clever. Of course, the music in the background is him playing one of his instruments. Well done, Paul!
In an extremely close vote tally, Sorek Minery of Blue Ridge Woodworks was our second place entry with his video showcasing a dark box built for wet plate photography for 179 Pictures. We were excited to learn that Sorek was in attendance at Festool Connect in Providence, so we were able to meet him and chat, which was great. Be sure to stick around for the end of the video for Sorek's analogy of woodworking to marriage.
In third place, was Roger Madore of Autumn Hardvest Woodworking with a video of his small furniture shop and the advantages of Festool.
Also, congratulations to our two randomly selected winners, Hayami Arakawa and Edmond Leung. Everyone who entered should have received or will shortly be receiving their Festool swag for participating.
