I just finished of a new set of Corian counter tops. I used my TS 55 with my Fs800 and FS 1400 tracks to break out material. Then I used my OF 1400 to do the required seams, and used my RO 125 to sand it all to gleaming perfection. I am very happy, and so are my clients.246308-0

Built a toddler bed for my two year old. One sheet of 3/4" Sapele ply and some re-purposed mahogany from an old bookcase.
Used the of1010 to make the half circle jigs. The carvex to cut the ply close. The cms vl and of 1400 with a large copy bit to get the plywood shapes to the pattern. Kapex to cut the miters on the corners. Dominos in each corner. Cms with a straight bit to joint one edge of a mahogany board, which i then ripped to 2 mm for the edge banding. Lather, rinse, repeat. The jointed edge was glued down to the plywood, and the saw cut edge sanded later on finishing. Sanded with the ro 150 and the rts 400. Two coats of surfix heavy duty oil with the vlies in between.
All done before, at lunch, and after work, on site.

I used my TS55 attached to my CT26 to cut down some ikea cabinets for a built in unit for a TV. Also used same set up to cut countertop for unit.

Building a wheel chair reading table:
I used the depth stops of the LR32 system to cut off factory edge of plywood which pushed me over the edge to order the Festool Parallel Guides. They are on the way

The Domino 500 was used for the legs and edging of the table top

The MFt3 table and the TS55 cut the plywood sections and edging and the TS55 cut the cherry sheet goods

The CT Midi pulled the dust
