    Does anyone use rotary hand sanders to re-finish furniture and can they be connected to the regular vacuume?

    Nope, you need a specific vacuum for them. I use a festool dust extractor with my random orbit sander.

    This is hilarious. How has no one congratulated you on this yet?

    The comment sounds suspiciously like it came from someone on Misc

    I prefer the Dixon, but I'm obviously biased. The Dixon looks more unique and is basically a fancy rocking chair. It also has 3 distinct "positions" depending on where you shift your weight (leaning forward, middle where it naturally sits, and leaning back), which I like and at the end of the day it's a super comfortable chair.

    Yeah I know, I need the stuff to be relatively low though, going to be on a rug with piles of artbooks nearby. People keep sitting on the floor so I'm solving it with a low chair where they can either chill or read. Any other suggestions?

    I'm also considering the Loop by Casamania, cause who does not want to see a chair/rug centaur in their place?:
