Last fall we gave away several limited-edition "90 Year" CXS drills. We have a few remaining, and we want FOG members to have four of them.

We’re going to do this a little different from other sweepstakes. (We want to make sure that non-FOG folks to hijack the competition.)

So here’s how you’ll enter: Reply to this thread and answer this question: What's the last project that you worked on using a Festool product? (Be sure to mention which tool(s) you used.)

It's just that simple. (No, you will not get multiple entries for multiple comments or mentioning multiple tools. One entry to person.) Winners will be randomly selected, so you don’t need to worry about the right/wrong answer. Just reply with your answer, and you’ll be entered.

A few more details:
Sweepstakes dates: Monday, June 6 - Monday, June 20 at 11:59 pm ET
Prize: Limited-edition CXS compact drill driver
Number of winners: 4
Eligible countries: United States and Canada
Click here for the complete rules and regulations

(Also, feel free to post non-entry replies/question/whatever to this thread. We'll gather all qualifying entries at the end.)

I have tried to finish a family kitchen project and have made some good progress lately.  I have updated the doors, drawers and paint for the entire kitchen.  Here are a few pics of the end panels I did this weekend:



Tools used:
OF1400 (in table and with MFS)

I am doing a write up on another page, but hey... who couldn't use a shiny new CXS!!

Cheers.  Bryan.

I did a composite deck last summer,
Using my Ts 75 to trim the decking was so easy and accurate.

The other was a oak handrail I did last week. Used my baby domino to join the rail.
Again real easy.

Yeah! I just finished a new pantry last week for my Wife and the storage of new baby stuff as we just found out we're having a baby! My kitchen is small and the only place I could put this is above an air return register between my kitchen and dining room. The idea is a cabinet on legs though the legs are for appearance only as the carcass is held in place with fasteners to studs. For this project I used my....
MFT-3 and

All told this is my own design with turned legs and false runners and the bottom cabinet is a small root cellar for potatoes and onions. Material used was cabinet grade Baltic birch 3/4 and 1/4 plywood and Poplar. Metal screen was used for the floor of the root cellar. The face frame and doors were made using floating tenons and dowels. Finish is Danish Oil. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Good idea!

I built a garage locker unit out of plywood and maple. I cut ask parts with the ts55 and Kapex and sanded the unit with my RO125.

Can I make a suggestion?

When such competitions/sweepstakes are run, could it not be in collaboration with @Phil Beckley in the UK/Europe to open the entries up to a wider FOG audience? After all I believe it was noted in a previous thread that non-US members actually outnumber US members now...

Congratulations on the new baby.

What is the screen for in pic number 4 ?
Is that for the root veggies you said?

Awesome idea and contest!

I used a borrowed TS 55 pretty extensively in my basement remodel a couple years back.  That exposure to Festool has convinced me of the tool quality.  I'm preparing to make my first purchase (sander and dust collector) to refinish windows, trim, etc. before the end of the month.

Hopefully this entry doesn't get disqualified due to lack of pictures. I have some on my smugmug account, it's just a PITA to post those via a mobile device.

Anyway, I'm nearly done refinishing a room for my MIL where we discovered termite damage. That set off a cascade of events which postponed my Sawstop acquisition for a while. The carpet finally got installed yesterday and I'm assembling the furniture this week. So glad the construction is done! 

Festool's used: Kapex, ETS EC 150, DTS 400, OF2200 (not in a CMS), CMS (not with a 2200), Carvex, Syslite, CXS, C15.

What would I do with another CXS?  Give the Festool bug to an unsuspecting friend of course!  :)

Edit - I forgot the obvious...a CT26 and Mini as well!  :P

The last project I did with a Festool tool was to cut a rectangular plywood panel to be mounted to the back of a bathroom closet door.  The panel will hold a wire rack and some hooks.  The flat panels of the door are too thin to mount something, hence the added thicker panel.

I used the TS55 track saw and my MFT/3 table.  (And two types of MFT dogs.  Those things are handy!)

Who couldn't use another csx90?

Great idea. I'm just finishing up some smaller walnut slabs for some lamp projects. Festools used included the OF2000 router to flatten and rout in some patches, the TS75 to cut to size and the ETS150/3 for sanding. The CT22 for dust control.

My most recent project was pretty minor, installed a room of engineered flooring using my TS55, MFT3 and CT mini.

Thanks for the chance.

Completing a closet organizing unit for our master bedroom closet which had only white wire shelving.  I used my TS55, parallel guides, MFT3, and RO125, in addition to my non festool router table.  Cabinets are 8' high.  For some reason I am unable to attach a photo at this time.

The latest major project was building all the cabinets and milling all the trim for our new home.  I used pretty much every Festool I own for this, but the ones that got the biggest workout were:  TS55EQ with CT22, CMS with OF1400, LR32 with OF1010, MFT, ETS150/3, RS2E, ETS EC150/3, Rotex RO150, Syslites (I have 5), CTMini, Kapex, CXS, T18, PDC, DF500, Vecturo, and SysRoll. 

Pic is one taken during installation of Kitchen cabinets- CT Mini and Syslite made the photo.

I have Festools- Big and Small and a few other tools

Even more fun on the Owner's Group!

Built a round frame for a round metal relief of a tree.  The frame started out as an octagon with the pieces joined courtesy of a Domino.  That was my first ever Festool project.

I'm currently building a set of wall-hung end table using the Domino and a new ETS 150/3 EQ sander and CT 36 dust collector.  That's the subject of another post:
