    Fibonacci Gauge?

    i think if you sketch or plan stuff out you naturally follow this ratio and tweak things till they "feel" right. As they say its built into nature and so are you, lol. I usually semi design on graph paper so don't really need exact measurements and things work out.

    does the fein have variable suction control? festool sanders are better when used with low suction, not sure what @jlwest will be hooking up to the system. The newer festool vacs have bluetooth :)

    I've got the CT22. I mostly use it for sanding and a tracksaw. I have the RO150 with the multi jet stream pad and the paper with the holes to match and it's great at keeping the worksurface clean so you don't rub the sawdust and grit that wears off the sandpaper back into the project. I got...

    Safety is important after the furniture leaves the shop.

    in the netflix special, supposedly there are knockdown designs that wont fall over but they dont incoprorate it because it adds to the cost. But the instructions they supply do say to attach to the wall. Sounds to me like an emotional issue because children died.
