New to Festool - near Columbus OHIO
« on: January 19, 2018, 12:11 PM »
Hello FOG.  I've never owned any Festool products, but I decided to begin the adventure.  Later today, UPS will be arriving with... uh...  many boxes of Festool stuff. 

I live near Columbus, Ohio and would be interested in meeting other FOG members (near or Northwest of Columbus) that are active in woodworking. 

Cheers,
Chuck

Welcome!

Wood Werks is having their Expo event from today through Sunday.  I'm up in the Cleveland-Akron area so I've only been to one of their expos, but it was worth going.  They pack a lot of action in a small space.

If you don't mind a drive, Hartville Hardware has a pretty largeTool Sale & Expo twice a year and the next one is scheduled for February 16 & 17.  Festool has a good presence at both events.

Have Fun!

Mike A.

I also live in Northwest Columbus and have drank the green coolaid for the past couple of years. We should stay in touch. What type of projects will you be working on?

Sorry to be slow responding.  My Festool order arrived and then I had to go out of town for business.  I'm planning to build a bunch of bookcases for my church library this summer, but maybe do a few garage storage cabinets and an mdf pseudo-shiplap wall thing over the fireplace at home.
