Something funky is going on with the CXS sweepstakes thread, and we're looking into it. Don't worry: If you made a submission, we still have record of all of those.

Until we get the thread fixed (or if we can't get it fixed), you can make your submissions here. (However, please do not post pictures to the thread for now. We're trying to see if those are part of the problem.)

You can review the original sweepstakes overview here.

Thank you @TylerC

I recently built a mobile cart for my MFT to reside on to make it more mobile in my shop.  It includes storage underneath for my systainers.  Of course I used my TS75 for all of my plywood sheets.  I just recently acquired the MFT, Domino DF-500, and a CT26.  The cart/storage unit along with these new tools will come in handy very soon as we just found out that our daughter and son-in-law are expecting their first child in January.  So it looks like Grandpa will get to break them in while building a crib for their new addition!  I'm quite certain that means I'll need another tool or two before it's complete.  ;)

What's the last project that you worked on using a Festool product? (Be sure to mention which tool(s) you used.)

I'm almost wrapped up with a project on the homefront, refinishing a fir log bench that I built a decade ago.  I used my RO 125 to strip what was left of the old finish and get it back down to bare wood.  I used Granat paper for almost all of that, except for a couple pieces of 80 grit Saphir that I found in a drawer that I don't remember buying.

I'm just about done with the spar varnish.  For the top of the bench, I have been sanding between coats with high grit Brilliant paper.  I'll post pics in another thread when it's finished.  Unless it turns out awful.

I just made some wine bottle holders, the MFT and TS55 were prefect for this and made the process so simple. The ETS 150/3 was great for the finish sanding and smoothing the edges with the interface pad after routing.

I am currently in the middle of building a set of cornhole boards.
I have used my OF1010 to cut out the 6" hole and round-over all the edges on the playing surface.
I also have used my DF500 to attach the side supports to the top. It is a bit overkill, but it is the perfect way to orient myself with the domino.

I Made six upper cabinets for a kitchen remodel.
1. TS55 to break down the plywood.
2. OF1400 to cut a dado in the sides for the back panels
3. MFT/3 table to cross cut panels to size
4. Domino DF 500 for case joints and assembly
5. Rotex RO 125 to rough sand raised panels
6. ETS 125 EQ to finish sand raised panels, doors & face frames
7. And of course the CT 26 HEPA Dust Extractor to suck up the chips!

Just finished putting trim around the skylights. Kapex came to my rescue in dealing with less then square opening/drywall.
Next is trimming the new attic door/hatch. As with the skylights I had to make my own trim though for the attic trim I'm also using the of1010 to round the trim edge a bit. Need trim that is wider in that this was a retro fit.

If anyone is looking for a good insulated attic access door/ladder checkout Fakro LWT.

I use my Festool tools for work everyday pretty much. Just used my RO90 with an interface pad to clean up some live edge boards for a feature wall. It was hooked to my CT26 with boom arm and clamped in place on one of my MFT3 tables.

Our shop was contacted by the maker of a custom built bubinga table. After several months, the clients that owned it  asked if he could touchup some minor wear damage to the top. A supplier he talked to recommended he contact our shop for advice. It turned out  he was the project supervisor on a 10,000 sq. ft. custom home we did the kitchen and master bath finishing on 11 yrs. prior.

After seeing the tabletop and hearing that the clients favored a more closed pore, higher gloss finish to complement the rest of their decor, it was decided we would do the touchup, topcoat, and polish to give the clients that look.

We cleaned and prepped, did our touchups, then sprayed barrier coats of Zinsser's Seal Coat dewaxed shellac. Then we topcoated with Target's waterborne EM9300 in gloss. After we had enough build and plenty of time to cure, we wet-sanded, then used Festool's round sanding blocks, RO150 sander, and Platin abrasive pads to start bringing up the shine. Using the RO150 in rotex mode with Menzerna compounds and foam pads, we were able to produce a beautiful, reflective shine. The versatility of the Rotex sanders is amazing.

Mark, using my Rotex to polish and enhance the depth of the beautiful grain.

Actually, I'm still working on a cherry dining room table set (Daniel Chaffin Trestle Table/Bench set design), and have one bench built so far. Using a TS-75, RO-90, midi, both Domino's, Carvex and various other non-festools. This past weekend, I used the full strength of my Syslite II to help clear out an old outbuilding with no power. Two 18v batteries lasted the entire weekend! Certainly needed a full N-95 mask for that one based on 25+ years of raccoon $%#@. Could have also used a Tyvek suit. A lot had to be burned, including some old barn wood that couldn't be cleaned up after the coons used much of it.

Thank you for the opportunity.

I made drawers and drawer fronts for my router table.

All the plywood was cut with the TS55 on the MFT. The drawer boxes were assembled with the help of the DF500, and they went together perfectly. Sanded with the ETS 150/3 and the DTS.

Of course, the entire router table was done with the help of all of the above as well, plus the OF1010 and LR32.

I used my T18 to screw a board to another one.
I just went camping and used 2 syslites.
I'm using my MFT to store stuff on.
I used one of my CT 26's last night to vacuum up the hair that I cut off of my head.
I used a Festool pin a few minutes ago to mark a line on a plumbing project that I'm working on.

I'm pathetic... At least I don't have to worry about my Kapex burning up, because I never use it.  [embarassed]

Cool contest. The last project I completed that is woodworking was a shoe rack -- used my TS75, MFT/3, CT22, C12, DTS400, ETS150/3, OF1010 with edging plate and LR32 and the Domino 500 and the Tradesman cleaning set to clean everything up.

The project after that was a steel fence repair that required lots of sanding and I used my RAS 115 for this project and MFT/3.

My latest project, which has been ongoing and will be for some time is my Maloof inspired High-back Dining Chairs and Table. One chair is in the sanding stage and I have 4-5 more to go. For this project I am using my 2 MFT/3's, Kapex, Mini-MFT/3, TS75, C12 and T15 drills, Centrotec Installers set, CT22, CT26, MFS 400, RAS115, ETS EC 125, Rotex 150, Rotex 90, Domino 500, clamps and a heck of a lot of sandpaper in all grits from Saphir 24 - up to Granat 500 and then Vlies 800 and the white pads after that (maybe higher grit Granat, just have not made it that far yet).  [big grin] Also my Tradesman cleaning set to clean up after lots of shaping and sculpting. I am sure there are a couple of tools I am forgetting to mention.

My last project was nothing glamorous, but a lot of fun since my 3 1/2 year old wanted to help. We built a dressing station with hooks and a shelf (for charging small electronics) for my wife.

I used TS55 to size the boards, the Kapex to cut them to their final lengths, the CMS/1400 to put a French profile on the perimeter, and the Domino 500 to mate the boards.

My assistant used the T12 to drill some pocket holes for temporary clamps at glue-up time, and the CXS (my kids love this thing, which is why it would be fantastic to have a second!) to run the screws for the pocket holes and the hooks.

Then we both used the DTS400 to get it ready for stain and shellac.

All in all, a great way to spend a Saturday!

I just finished reflooring my deck with a combination of cumaru and ipe. I used the 1400 router to put in the slots for the hidden fasteners. The pattern I went with also had boards meeting perpendicularly so I used the domino to put dominos in the ends of the boards that then went into a groove in the other boards. I used my cxs for predrilling holes and some driving of screws (shared duty with my yellow impact driver). I used my ts55 to evenly trim the ends of the boards after they were put down and my Carvex to notch as needed around the perimeter.

I used my RO150 to make a quick sanding pass before putting down the oil finish and came back through with a vlie pad from my surfix kit to work the oil into the boards better. Obviously the vacs were used throughout with all of these processes, except the drilling. It made it especially nice because my wife was able to start putting down oil on the other side of the deck while I was still sanding without worry of a bunch of dust blowing over onto it.

I'm going to be using many of the same tools to build the outdoor kitchen next, also using cumaru for the main structure and shelving.

I just finished building this credenza for my stereo using my TS 55, my Domino DF500 and sanded with my ETS EC 150/3, all of which were used with my CT 26.

This is the second of two matching 7 foot credenzas that I built for each side of a large 10 foot wide and 19 foot tall fireplace.

The credenzas are constructed from torsion boxes made with 3/4" ply ribbing and 1/4" MDF faces and covered with rosewood veneer.
The doors are made from 3/4" ply covered with red elm veneer.

To get the look of unbroken grain across the 4 door panels, I veneered one large panel and cut the indivudual doors using the TS 55.  The TS 55 is the only tool that could create a cut  in delicate veneer clean enough to create these doors.  Thank you Festool!

I'm very happy with the way the veneer on the doors came out because you can't tell where the veneer was seamed, it just looks like one wide section of lumber.

This second credenza also includes drawers custom fit for my CD collection.

@Tayler_mann Good eye! Yes, that Technics turntable is about 40 years old and still works like new.  Still have all my old vinyl as well. Recently had to replace the old Technics receiver and CD player.  In fact, if you compare the photos you'll notice two different CD players.  Very impressed that you spotted that. Surprisingly, the 40 year old Pioneer cassette deck still works great as well, though I'll rarely use it except for a few old "time tapes" my brother and I made years ago talking to ourselves in the future...

By the way, I'm extremely pleased with the new Onkyo receiver and CD player. I also added a Klipsch sub woofer to fill in the bottom missing from my Mirsch bookshelf speakers (which, by the way, are also 40 years old and still sound great). Very happy with my sound system now.

My dad has had a technics table for years as well. They do sound really good for a direct drive. The newer Onkyo stuff is really good equipment. I have the tx-nr 5008 onkyo amp and processor. It's an amazing device especially when paired with Audyssey pro.

I used my TXS while drywalling the ceiling in my garage.  Nice and lightweight.  The right-angle attachment got a workout screwing on the fiddly bits around the roller doors and the monorail beam I have stuffed up between my joists.

Having a CXS would make for a nice pair.  [smile]

The last project I worked on using a Festool product was a rolling kitchen island made of pallet wood and rustic maple.

I used my domino 500, ts 75, mft table, T15 drill, trion jigsaw and 18v carvex, and ro 90 and ro125.

I would post a picture of it but you asked not to so I am not

I just used the LR 32 set with a 1010 router to do shelf-pin holes for the first time, for a bookcase.  It's great.

I recently built a Kapex miter station for my shop.  I used the OF1400 router, Conturo, and MFK700 to build this project.  I used a medium gray double sided melamine (PB core) with both 2mm and 3mm PVC edgebanding.  The top corners have a radius to prevent what I refer to as "hip jams".  This was also my first use of the Sys-AZ drawers that provide storage for 4 systainers.  I also included a regular drawer and shelf for storage of Kapex accessories and additional blades.  The back has shelves deep enough for storage of various connectors I use (storage is in plastic cookie jars from a dollar store).  The saw is easily removed for attachment to a mobile stand when used away from the shop.  I have also attached Aigner rails so that I can attach extension tables when required.

other thread still broken.

cool prize, here's my entry:
Installed laminate flooring in 4 rooms in the house; part of an ongoing 'doing it myself' renovation of a nearly hundred year old house.  Good portable dust collection was a big consideration in getting Festools.

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.

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
