Fantastic!  Great space with wonderful lighting and layout.  I'm sure you will love doing work there and no doubt, your work will be raised due to the inspiration of the space.

Thanks for sharing!

@HAXIT   Where did you get the slat wall for hanging the Festool accessories?

Here is a close up pic from that slatwall. You can not see it from faraway, it is not plastic or MDF. It is interlocking aluminum with green pvc strips inserted to cover the screws.





Here is the Hammer n4400 band saw wich is connected to Laguna dust collector and when I need it, I just roll it for A3 31. This dust collecter is just for this two machines. At the center I have my TS 75 and the ct sys on sys-roll so I can quickly grab it and go to garage just to cut the sheet good to bring them down here.



It was a large open area in the first picture and I moved what was there just to show how much space I can have if I want to but I have two Felder FAT 300 lifting tables that goes there.



The next picture shows one at lowest 400mm and one at highest 1030mm and can be set at any point between by using the hydraulic lift. The tabe top is glue, solvent and scratch resistant and is almost same size as MFT3 just 20mm wider and 100mm longer.

Here is some usage of the lifting tables. I put one at each end of MFT3 which helps to support a very long lumber and for some projects the vac sys is a bit high for me, so I just remove it from plate and drop them on lifting table. Oh life gets much easier.
Here is the example.



Setup for joining.



setup for thickness.



And finally just two pics from corners for whole shop.

Finally something about lights and use it in the efficient way.
When I started this project, I know the layout in my head and wired the lights half and half. If you take a marker and put a line in the middle of the chimney to the front and the end wall, you would split the shop in half. There are 12 florescent fixtures in the shop and each one holds 4 T8 4' tube. So each side of the shop has 6 fixtures which has separate breaker and switch.I can turn the half shop off to be more efficient and still get great lighting with no shadows.
For example, If I work on the festool side, I can turn the lights off on the other half or opposite. I just took two pictures by standing at the end of chimney.
Work on the festool side.



work on the Hammer side.



Thanks everyone for following this thread and I hope I could be useful for others and feel free to leave you comments or questions.

Amazing workspace....thanks for the share!  I would love to hear more on the Felder tables - I have seen them and they look very versatile. Not cheap, but useful nonetheless. I have thought about buying one for exactly the same purpose.

Thanks, I did not buy both of them at the same time. I bought the first one 9 months ago and when it arrived it was build much better then what I was thinking. It is 250 bound and holds up to 600 pound and all 4 rollers get locks. I was moving it under the MFT3 and every cut I was making I could put it on the top and keep the MFT3 ready for another cut. I started moving much faster and easier I ended up to buy another one 3 months ago and I am glad I did. Unless you pick it up,this is heavy and comes on skid so it is not a ups or fedex item and shipping cost approximately $250 depends on where you live.Let me know if you need any more info.

Well done. Shop looks great. Enjoy it now after all your hard work.

Which megawall profile did you use?
Did megawall provide the green screw cover or was that your custom touch?
Will any standard slat wall hooks, etc work, or do you need special ones?

I've been leaning towards some type of metal peg board vs slatwall, but this looks great and will be much better than any plastic/mdf variant I've only seen up,until now. This is a great find.

Thanks for sharing the project from beginning to end with all the little details. Now go break in all that new equipment.

This is an amazing workshop. I have been following this avidly. My favourite thread in a long time
Those photos would have been at least 18 months apart if it was me

You must have another area for all your crap

You have inspired me. I'm going to try and get my workshop floor painted in the next couple of days

And again amazing

This has been an amazing  project in just the time it took.  There is just one thing you have not shown. Your scrub area for when you are about to perform surgery. 

I love the clock.  Do you pour water on those tiny tools to make them useful and then shink them when finished?

All kidding aside, your planning and vision have been great. You have a terrific work space.

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated.The megawall profile that I used called 1 3/8" flat back A138-1s-96.
They only sell the tracks, for green screw cover and hooks look here.

The standard hooks work on this one which I mixed match to get what I needed but I am not sure if they would work with other tracks that they have.

Thanks Tinker and much appreciated. The clock was my idea, I designed and there is a website that they made it for me. It is made out of 1/4" acrylic.

This is quite possibly the nicest shop transformation I have ever seen, never mind the fact you did it in just over a month. I'm also going through the process of building a shop in my basement, so I can appreciate the sheer amount of time you've invested thinking this through and getting it done. I have a feeling there are tons of little details you agonized over, but will never be noticed by the casual observer since they seem obvious now. Laying out each machine to have proper in/out feed areas, especially around all of the obstructions is a brain twister in itself.

Kudos to a job well done. You have truly inspired me and likely many others on this forum.

Mind if I ask where you are located?

Your build is inspirational...both in looks and speed of execution. All of your equipment choices (A3-31, N4400, CMS...) have been on my wish list for a while. Seeing them all together in one space increases the want.

Well done! [cool]

@HAXIT

This is one of the threads that I know I will refer back to from time to time for all the great ideas you've presented. 

Your build is truly amazing and it's astonishing how quickly you completed it!  I only wish I could have half your energy. LOL

One question - What's the main ceiling height?  It looks low and I wondered how that affected some of your decisions.

Thanks, Mike A.

Wow. This is one of my favorite posts, very excited for you Haxit.

I had a few questions about your epoxy floor. I have just re-did my garage/shop and want to do an epoxy floor in 2017 so I was hoping you could provide some insight with a couple of things:

- Looks like you did the grinding and finish yourself. Can you provide some feedback on the difficulty/skill set needed to achieve that finish? I've redone hardwood floors but never concrete.....I am thinking "it's my garage/shop, so why not give it a shot".
- What brand of epoxy did you use?

Thanks in advance and congrats on a beautiful work space. Can't wait to see future project posts.
