You're right, Roger, I hope there isn't a sad story behind that.

There's not a spec of sawdust anywhere and I've never seen such clear benches. I love the natural light and view of the mountains. The view of the European hardware ain't so bad either!
It's a small shop. Doesn't look big enough for a commercial shop. I'd like to know the story too.

Here is an even better link of their work:
https://picasaweb.google.com/1161318...ryAndFurniture

I would love to hear his story of how he got started and why he is selling it all.

A lot of talent there.

I would like to know where do you get the 8' MFT.. unless it was custom milled and they just put on the sticker:

That is nice, isn't it? I'm guessing that it's two 1080 table tops (you can just make out the joint between them), with some extra-long rails. I could sure use one of those.

Anyone know where to get the super-long rails?

Peter, Festool used to sell them as an accessory for the MFT 1080.

Check out Page 16 of Jerry Work's manual for details and the part number:

Getting The Most Out Of The MFT
