Woodworker Bill Jordan Won $6,000 Worth of Festool ToolsPARKERSBURG, WV - Bill Jordan now has $6,000 worth of new Festool tools in his Provo, UT shop. He and his wife recently returned from an expense-paid trip to the Henderson, NV Festool Training Center near Las Vegas – all part of his $10,000 Festool Fantasy Camp Sweepstakes Grand Prize. Woodcraft, co-sponsor of the sweepstakes, conducted a random drawing in November 2012 in which Jordan’s name was picked from the names of 26,034 total entries received.

The Grand Prize tool package included a Kapex Sliding Compound Mitersaw, a Domino Joiner DF 500 Q Set T-Loc, a Router OF 1400 EQ T-Loc, an MFT/3 Multifunction Table, an RO 90 Sander and a CXS Cordless Drill Set.

Jordan said his exposure to a track saw showed him that he could put a straight edge on a long board without another step to finish the straightening process. “I came away with a lot of insight into how to use tools, and I discovered a new approach to woodworking,” he added.
