There are some awesome projects in this thread. I really like the MDF panels and the walnut mirror.
I took on a job to reconfigure a local shop and set up a new production system for building custom carriage house-styled garage doors. The labor market here is pretty tight, so for the last six weeks I've made little progress on making changes, and spent a lot of time keeping the current projects on track by doing it myself, a real "head cook and bottle washer" situation. My first non-temp hire starts tomorrow.
The two reasons I took on the job were the owner's willingness to let me make any changes I saw fit, and the investment in a TS 75 and a lot of rails that he had already made. I gave him the part numbers for a CT 36 and an ETS EC 125 to get started, but that's really the tip of the iceberg for this shop.
I can't say that this job is really my favorite of the summer. That honor would go to a gnarly murphy bed I designed made from wire-brushed alder and speed-rusted metal panels, but I didn't build or install it, nor do I have photos (the builder has an enviably solid Festool stash, and the installer definitely used a Kapex on the job). But this garage door is one I built from reclaimed wood, and it's pretty well documented. I used the TS 75 to straight-line the LVL's used for framing material, and to square up the finished door, and to cut apart the sections. I also used the TS with the 1080 rail to crosscut the lauan door skins that went on the back of the sections.
Here's the entire 8x16 door:
This is a closer view to show the wood. The material looks janky, but I was impressed by how sound the wood was. Many of the checks that look extra rustic are very shallow. I had 5/8" thick tongue and groove milled out of it and every single piece was usable.
Here's a closer view of the section cuts after the door was put back together for a test fitting.
A sixteen-foot cut in a finished product is intimidating. Even the smallest door has to have it done twice. I have to put a lot of trust in the Festool TS system. It has yet to let me down.
