Kidding aside, the box contained the Festool WCR-1000 workcenter. This little diddy fits on top of your dust extractor and gives you a platform for stuff. It has peg-board-like surfaces for more stuff. It has a shelf for (wait for it...) stuff. It has dual sander hooks for stu... er, sanders. It has a drill hook for your drill.
In this video playlist, I unbox and assemble. I show off some of the build details of the WCR-1000 as well as some considerations for installation (and there are some!) If you plan on getting this for an older model dust extractor, I think you should watch this clip first. It won't detract you from the WCR-1000, but at least you'll know a couple installation options.
The final part of the video playlist is a tour of my installation, which is much different than the one shown in the promo videos. I also go through some nice uses. I haven't used this at all yet -- I just got it! -- so this is definitely a preview. Give me a month or so for a more detailed review.
Keep an eye, too, on the 'WCR-1000' label on the sidebar of my blog. I fully expect it to start filling up with blog postings with more ideas you can apply to yours.
Popcorn? Okay, hit it...
