Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Manufacturer: Festool

Our Festool tool reviews take these woodworking tools and put them into the hands of our Pros. This gives our readers a real-world take that uses and tests the tools as designed. We also reviewed the Festool Hybrid sander line and paired it with the Festool CT 36 E AC CleanTec dust extractor. One of our Pro reviewers spent considerable time with the Festool Domino DF XL 700 joiner as well as the Festool Domino DF500 mortise & tenon joiner. Festool tools are designed to be used as a system. The tools feature a very unique look. Many professional woodworkers in small shops seem to appreciate their well thought-out design and functionality. Overall, while Festool has a limited number of tools, they all share exceptional build quality. Festool Tool Reviews in the Hands of Pro Woodworkers Our professional woodworkers give very precise opinions in our Festool tool reviews below. They provide invaluable feedback which helps Pros make the right purchase decisions for their small shops.
