but make sure it has the right curve for the task at hand
i read that luthiers and other instrument makers use curved cauls and often make them custom for the instrument they are working on
of course these are small cauls mostly

As Leon said, nothing to do with the quality of cut, which is excellent with a Festool plunge cut track saw.
The value of a fixed fence on a table saw, set once and used to batch cut all like dimensions before moving it, is hard to beat for precision production woodworking.
Festool has this parallel guide rail system in the photo below, which will come close to accomplishing the same thing, but are a bit fussy in initial set up, and require diligence when using to maintain your settings. (you can see the small aluminum, support bars I've retrofitted to each guide stop to help in that regard).

Still, quite sufficient for onsite use where most portable table saws won't give you the precision, or the repeatability.

You should send that pic to Festool. I'm quite surprised, with their engineering prowess, that they didn't incorporate those support bars on the guide stops.
I like the design of the rails being on the edges of the plywood to keep the saw guide square to the stock, but surely they could see that the whole thing would want to tip down if not being used on a large table top.

Well that and a better attachment to the track method. IIRC Woodpeckers had a better set of parallel guides for the track, at least they seem to attach better and have a larger capacity.

Woodpecker had a problem attaching to the rails, too. They just sent new connection hardware to their guide users. The interesting part was that the hardware was from Incra. Are they the same company?

Hummmm. The biggest problem that I have with the Festool parallel guides is that they fit across the rubber strips under the tracks. the makes movement of the guides difficult. That holds well but a relative pain when adjusting the guides elsewhere along the track. Those rubber strips hold on to the guides as well as the material being cut. ;~)
I have often thought that Woodpecker was some how related to Incra. Incra IIRC is based in Dallas. Woodpeckers is in OH.

At best my original description was not too clear. Anyway here is the design.
The top mantel will have 3 doors to store what ever in, TV/Stereo controllers.
The bottom sides will be drawers and the bottom center will have a fabric panel and hide the electronics.
IR will pass through the fabric so you will not have to see electronics lights shining back at you.
