The new Festool OF 1400 router manual has a cat in it.

Rick Christopherson wrote a great manual and slipped

a cat in there. There is a petition to keep the cat,

over at the Festool owners group.

My cat told me to vote yes. Actually I work in my cats home.

He thought it would be nice if he got some exposure too.

So here you go.

I've always been a sucker for a black cat with big yellow eyes. I've had 2 or 3 of them.

Nice looking cat, Per. I'm glad he lets you use his home for work :) Cats and dogs make good companions when you are working alone in the shop. You don't feel so dumb when you start talking to yourself; you can always say you are talking to the cat. :eek:

My cat goes where ever & when ever he pleases, Kiters is his name, but I call him Fat Cat.

Nice-looking cat, Per. I also like the woodgrain on the front panel of that nice dovetailed cat bed you made for him. What kind of wood is that?

Oh yeah,

The cat bed. And the little hole is to remind him of the

mice which pay his keep.

Actually Vaughn, I purchase mahogany in large lots.

And often the yard fellows do not pull these amazing

pieces so I collect and hoard most of them

consider it my bonus and slip a little in here and there.

to the customers

Like this piece here.

I still have 30 bd feet of this.

It is all Mahogany. (African)
