I am very busy at work and that is the only reason I just work over the weekends now but this week I am off till January 10th and I am in the shop every day. So sometimes I cannot post because I am coming back from work too late and I have to go back early in the morning. But it will change soon and I can be in the shop for longer hours.
So far I did a lot in three days, I made some hardware for slat wall and I just have to paint it and it will be done.
At the same time I am working on the storage area for under the stairs which is a nice space to store cleaning stuff, paint and etc...
I had to make some large boards and I had two choices, use how ever I have because I have to clean up the garage and it gets painted any way or visit the lumber yard which would be faster.
I just used what I had and here were I am now. It is moving forward so far so good.

I finally finished today after working almost everyday.
The idea was to use the under stairs to store mostly cleaning,painting glue...etc and some not everyday use tools and after the thought this is what came up to my mind. If you just screw few shelf on the wall, then center stays open because you have to walk in to get the stuff. How about use the whole space and bring the stuff to you and put them back quickly?





The dark gray one is the deepest and one side only but the other two are two- sided.
Here is the pic from the other side.

OK, let's go for ride now. Here is all three of them stored under the stairs and you just have to pull it out take what you need and put it back like in the second pic.
I also hanged a thread verifier right there and working on the back wall for storing marking and measuring tools only. It just a quick look but not done yet.
Happy new year to all and wishing the best in coming year.

Every time I revisit this thread, I am still amazed at how nice your shop turned out. Tons of great ideas, and more every month it seems. 

I’m curious, have you ever considered selling the Festool router table and one MFT, then using the reclaimed space for a short stroke Hammer sliding table saw/shaper combo?

Great design and use of space!
The only thing I would have changed would be the access side of the big/one sided drawer to give access from where you come from...

But really great work! [emoji1319]

Not yet because I use the cms in the garage as well but I would like to have a shaper in the future. Thanks for the comments.

It was the original plan but I made a mistake and it was too late. As far as it is not a big problem I just let it go.

The spray shop is not done yet, hopefully the end of this year. Right now I use the garage and the next project will be the storage for all cutting tools if I get my parts by weekend.

Thanks to all of you folks for following this thread and comments are much appreciated. For some of us who is full time employee, it is not easy to be on line all time and progress goes slow sometimes. So that is why you see gaps between my posts but hopefully it is getting better.

Thanks for taking the time to share your work.  Very nicely done!  What a great idea for using space under the stairs.

What are silver and black knobs on the wall next to the stairs?  At first I thought they were a display of knobs, then a rack of sockets, but I looked more closely and it doesn't seem to be either of those.

How are you supporting the shelves in the storage units?  It looks like you have routed slatwall grooves in the vertical panels and inserted supports for the shelves, so that you can reconfigure the shelves or use other slatwall accessories.  What bit(s) did you use to route them?  It looks like an undercutting bit of some sort.  Also, it also looks like you routed grooves in the dark gray unit at regular intervals, while only routing slats for the shelves that are visible in the lighter units.  How did you decide where to route the grooves on the different panels?

Harvey you'll usually see those at the hardware store or big box store near all the threaded fasteners.

Hi Harvey,
Sorry for late reply, I was in and out for few days. The folks here answered your first question and it is available all over at hardware stores. You very much got the concept here and the shelves are supported by hardware that I made which I had time otherwise I had to buy and there are a lot of choices. If you need I can post some web sites but if you google hardware for slat wall you will see the few pages would pop up.
For slat wall grooves I have about 10 different sizes but for this I used the [Freud #52-522] this bit is the best when you want to buy the support and accessories that is already made. The bit is long and can go very deep, so make sure to try it on a scrap to ensure everything are at 90 degree. Dark gray is the deepest rack and I routed it out standard which is 3" from center to center the slat just in case if I want to change something in the future so I do not have to make the rack again. The other two are going to be used only for glue, polish,stain and caulk and it would be waste of time if I would route it out like the dark gray one. I made the location of the shelves based on how this stuff are sold. If it is too short, then some stuff would not fit and if it is too long, that would be waste of space.I used 1gal,1qt paint and caulk to decide the location for shelves.
OK, I going dawn in shop again.

This shop looks incredible!!

I have recently purchased a Hammer A3-41 and need to move it into my basement shop as well. Do you have any tips on how to do this safely based on your experience?

Thanks for the comment. I hired a industrial movers to do the job and did not touch anything. It is not easy to find one for a small job and you call 12 companies and only three of them called back.
Good luck and enjoy your new machine.

OK folks, anything that I ordered is back order and it does not let me to start my next project in hope this is the last year I am working  my way out to finish this shop. I have no choice but to wait and I am going to change my plan right now to do some small projects which I had left them for the end but to stop the anger and get busy it is what it is for now.
I finally got one of this waxed paper and shop towel dispenser for the shop to stop using the paper towels from up stairs and to protect the table from complex gluing the waxed paper works great.



The clamp storage that I made is good for clamps up to 40" long and I do have 50 and 60 inches as well. I bought 4 of each and if I need anything longer I will use the extensions that I have. I would like to keep this longer stuff out of my way and this is what I did.
Here is the 4x60" under the stairs.



When I was working on this just found out the nice place for the 4x50" and also made a hanger for brooms and dust pan and all together came up great and completely out of my way. Also you can see in the picture that the back wall is getting filled up.





Now I am thinking about the shop stool so I do not have to seat on the floor anymore.

I am not a big fun of sit down and work but I need a stool for shop anyway.
I got this left in the box for almost 3 years now and there is no chance that it will be used.



So I think I will make something identical to MFH 1000 to be more then just a stool and use this black blue foam before it rot in the box.
