What's your impression of the centipede work support?  I've looked at it a few times but haven't purchased one.

Love the centipede stand. I have both sizes. I've used them for many things including laying a sheet of plywood on it and using as a scaffold or play for to do ceiling work

I think it's generally as advertised but it's either fully open or fully closed. You can't just partially extend it to have a smaller work space. You also can't move it easily with anything on it but it does hold weight and doesn't "wiggle."

Good ol' Menards.  Looks like the only thing you might have from them is their bucket.  It would sure be nice if they carried Milwaukee and Festool tools.

Nice setup, how many square feet in total are you working with?

Nice.  As if I needed to add another item to my "Festool shopping list"...I need one of those Work Centers for my CT.

Great shop! I love how different everyone's spaces are! What color are the cabinets? I need to wall in my dust collection, and I'm thinking doors and some paint...

What is the support structure I see in the first Picture? It looks like a collapsible work bench of some kind?

They came prepainted. I don't have a color name

Menard's used to be a huge outlet for Milwaukee tools...and then suddenly, John and Milwaukee no longer saw eye-to-eye.

Festool & Menard's...it will never happen...their views are way too different. It's all about maximizing profits for both of them, but they approach the same subject matter from opposite ends of the spectrum. Neither one's right...neither one's wrong...a perfect standoff.

Wonder if the sale of Milwaukee Tool to Techtronic had anything to do with that change?  It certainly was not the best result for the Milwaukee Tool brand.

Not really...Menard's can be very tough on their vendors, asking/demanding certain things. According to the local Milwaukee rep, it got down to both Milwaukee & Menard's questioning the value of the relationship. After that, Bosch showed up on the shelves.

If you could have an exclusive partnership with Menard's or Home Depot, which one would you choose?
