As I suspected, you're not.

I see, my 60 years of experience is just a delusion? My, bad, I'll take your word for it.

I Never said _no one_ uses Festools, never said they were trash either. You seem to enjoy making shit up to fit your delusions.
If you think you can suddenly build great stuff because you have expensive tools, go for it, it's is a delusion that sells plenty of unneeded, expensive tools to the hobbyist.
BTW, two is the exact number of people I know that use Festool, just as many as nailshooter knows, and the same two guys. Funny coincidence huh. Well, Scott Phillips now uses them, and he builds crap, and I suspect he is getting paid well from the Festool marketing dept. Tommy Mac also must have had a wad of money dropped on him by Festool. Tommy Silva should be next on their list. Silva is the only one of those I respect.

True, I've stated many times I assume they are quality tools, but never using them, I'm just guessing, or as you say, talking out my ass.
I'm not guessing that they sell a shop vac for $650, and that mine does about everything I want at around 1/6th the price.

Perhaps, but that 1% has crazy money to spend. It's much better to work for people with money than those without.

There is a small furniture store in Brenham, TX that sells this style furniture. The big difference is that the furniture is not as pretty as if they were built with walnut. They almost exclusively use Ipe. It is an effort to even move one of the table side seating benches. Not to mention, I estimate, about 4 times heavier than walnut.

No dancing girls, yet, but I did fix a drink, after assembly.
Kinna cramped space, for better pics.

------------------------------------------------------------- So when do you do the fork lift to compliment the table?
Enjoy.

LOL. Actually, it's not so bad lifting and moving the table top, as one m ight suppose. Certainly no different than moving a side-by-side frig/free zer or a chest freezer. As is, it's difficult for two people to move or m anipulate. Flipping it, on the saw horses, is easy for two people. I hav e some furniture carts, that will be sufficient for rolling the top around. The other individual parts can be easily managed by one person.
Next project: I've started work on a coat rack/bench, for the camp, using some of the pecan from a fallen tree, at the farm. The initial idea, for the pecan, was to make headboards for the beds, and the headboards will eve ntually be made. These pecan boards have warped, really bad, so they won' t be planed and sanded, as the walnut has been. https://www.flickr.com/photos/43836144@N04/13581255313/in/photostream
Thanks Lew. Sonny

Not only is that table over the top gorgeous, it plenty damn sturdy. No matter how much food you stack on there, it will never strain this table. I wonder if people will feel they can eat more at this table. Casue they don't want to get up and leave. Let's stay awhile and eat! (And admire the table.)

Thanks. It is sturdy. That was one thing I paid attention to, regarding t he mortises' size and alignment, maintaining the squareness of my carving t hem. I had a mock tenon, I used as a test piece/guide. The through teno ns were easy enough, to make, and are a perfect match for the mortises. T he tenons slide in fairly easily, when nudged by hand and knee, yet lock ni ce and tight, when the keys are inserted. The issue with the extra tight k eys, on one end, may be there is a drip/run of finish (that I missed seeing ), inside the key holes.

I had a similar setup for my dining room table. I went with a loose *vertical* key. It just drops in, but every time the table wiggles it tightens the key a little bit. Never had a problem with them.
