Drawing on more than 20 years of cabinet-making experience, founder Paul Akers caters to the unique needs of the modern carpenter by fashioning innovative and timesaving woodworking tools. Akers solicits design ideas from working carpenters to create FastCap's unique wares, including its signature line of self-adhesive screw caps ($2.10+ for a sheet, number of caps/sheet vary based on material). Fine tune drawings with a durable FatBoy pencil ($14.95), build beatific window and door moldings with the Pro Tools reveal square ($5.95), or measure spaces with the FlatBack 16' tape measure ($7.95), which has a blank edge for writing notes and cinderblock-inspired cinquains.
