FastCap Tour: Lean & Mean

Gary Katz, of Katz Roadshow, posted a summary of Scott Well’s (This is Carpentry) and Dan Parish’s (Millworks by Design) tour of FastCap on the This is Carpentry Blog.

“My brother is a year older than me, and because of that, he’s far more experienced and much smarter. But the thing that bugs me is that everything always has to be ‘just so’ with him. Sometimes, when I think about my brother I remember the last words in Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury: “…each in its ordered place.” Even the pencils and pens on my brother’s desk have to be ‘just so’ before he’ll answer a ringing phone; his door bench is the same way: every tool has to be razor sharp and in its proper place before he’ll start work on a door.

It took me years to understand why. I have to thank Paul Akers, from FastCap, for helping me see my brother in a totally new way….” Press here to read the entire post.
