10 clues you have a Festool family
« on: February 17, 2011, 10:22 AM »
All of these happened in the last week, culminating in a memorable Valentine's Day...

1. A Domino tenon falls out of your wallet.

2. Even though you don't have a Domino joiner handy, you use it:

32219-0

The family iPad wasn't staying in the wireless keyboard due to an extra kid-proofing rubber sleeve, and this Domino fell out of my wallet, so, well, you get the idea...

3. At a restaurant, you are disappointed to discover that the edge banding on your table is nailed on.

4. Your kids start naming your Festools.  Meet R2-D2:

32221-1

5.  Instead of asking for video games or other toys, your kids start asking for custom furniture.

6.  When you see another dad leafing through a woodworking magazine while waiting for school to get out, you wonder if he uses Festools.

7.  A highlight of your Saturday night is finding out your Festool retailer's Sunday hours.

8.  Another highlight of your Saturday night is finding out your Festool retailer's Festool stock on-line.  1, and 1!

9.  The retailer doesn't have to persuade you to buy Festools, since Brice Burrell and those other video-as-I-woodwork guys already have.

10.  For Valentine's Day you get... MFT/3-PO?

32223-2

Haha, I ticked off five of these (although I'm not saying which five!).  This made me laugh...scary how it takes over your life, huh?
