Back to Press Releases
PARKERSBURG, WV (January 2008) – Woodcraft, the woodworking industry’s leading retailer of top quality woodworking products and education, has announced that Jack Reeves of Shawnee, Kansas has won the company’s FESTOOL Fantasy Camp & Shop Giveaway Sweepstakes. Jeff Forbes, President of Woodcraft Supply, the company that operates Woodcraft, made the announcement.

“Woodworkers are passionate about their craft,” said Forbes. “The FESTOOL Fantasy Camp & Shop Giveaway provides an unmatched experience for the serious woodworker and also outfits them with the latest tools, products and training with the goal of elevating their craft. We couldn’t be happier for Mr. Reeves.”

Forbes said Reeves will receive a shop full of FESTOOL tools, a four day, three night stay at the Sunset Station Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada and a two-day FESTOOL training session only reserved for dealers.

Reeves said, “I was a woodworker in my younger years. I’ve been reacquainted with woodworking and woodturning in the past few years and look forward to this hobby as I approach my retirement years. As a plumbing contractor, I know the value of good tools and training. This is unbelievable and I am very much looking forward to meeting and training with FESTOOL and, of course, to get working with my new tools!”

Reeves, a resident of Shawnee, Kansas, started out making cabinets in the 1960s while home building with his brother. Upon his move from Austin, Texas to the Kansas City area, he phased out of woodworking to work in a family plumbing business. With children raised and more time on his hands, he is again enjoying the pleasure of creating with wood.

Reeves will receive a variety of FESTOOL products, including the FESTOOL Domino, a circular saw, multifunction table, dust extractor, random orbit sander, rotex sander and plunge router. In all, Reeves will receive more than $3,000 worth of tools to outfit his shop.

Christian Oltzscher, President and CEO of FESTOOL USA, said, “We’re extremely happy to have partnered with Woodcraft on the Fantasy Camp & Shop Giveaway Sweepstakes. Woodcraft customers have long embraced the innovation, precision and superior quality of the FESTOOL brand.
