February 23rd and 24th marked an advent in the woodworking world – we held the first “Cabinet Industry Revolutionized” seminar right here at Laguna Tools HQ.

demo took our guests from fabrication of cabinet parts on the SmartShop III, to boring and insertion of Lockdowel technology on the SmartShop LD4, and final assembly of the cabinet. Cabinet makers got to witness the machining capabilities of the LD4 and gave their approval with subtle oo’s and ah’s.
