I’m disappointed———was anticipating a "caulk" response.

Looks like the asbestos cloth is NAINA.........

Thank You! I take great pride in my hackery. Now I'm trying to source the Festool asbestos cloth repair kit. Is that naina?

While trimming extended cabinet stiles I hit a hidden screw and saw sparks. I didn't really think much about it because I routinely hit the occasional brad or staple. I must have looked pretty funny frantically looking around for the source of smoke while holding the saw with a smoldering bag in my hand...

Kinda glad I didn't have the vac hooked up.

I also have a Shaper Origin ("SO"), but I just haven't found the time to figure out how to use it.  I've used the Festool workcenter ("WC") when I've taken classes at Festool, but I don't have one.  Anyway, looking at your writeup I really admire that you were able to create your design and then fabricate it using the SO.  It occurred to me that, rather than mounting it using the studs, which appeared to have been one of the difficult issues that you addressed, a variant on your design, using a CT mounted FESTOPPER (see my other threads or search on Etsy) would provide both elevation and easier mounting for the WC.

Which software did you use to design the WC to allow you to create the .SVC files for the SO?  Are you willing to share the plans (the original design file and/or the .SVC files)?  PM me if you'd like to trade a set for the FESTOPPER plans.

I suppose I am not as well equipped as Per Swenson.    But for cutting a 4x8 laminate sheet, I lay it flat on the floor and mark the line where i want to cut.   I take a couple of scrap 1x2's and put them on either side of the cut line, just to raise the sheet.   Then freehand cut the line with my circular saw. 
When the pieces are smaller, I indeed use my table saw.  clamping a board tight to table top, along the fence.

I cut my plastic laminate I use for countertops with a router bit.  No chance of any potential chipping from a saw blade.
