I've posted so many questions related to my shop reorganization that I decided it would be useful for me to just centralize it in a single thread and chronicle the ongoing changes.  Just to set the parameters, my workshop occupies one-half of a 2 car garage in what used to be my grandfather's, then my dad's, and now my house (which I share with my aunt -- 2 family upstairs/downstairs unit -- she gets the other half of the garage).  My dad originally setup a rudimentary workspace in the garage, and I've been gradually modifying it since I took over the house.  Since I started to convert my workshop over to Festool, I've found my conceptions of the workspace changing radically, and decided this past Winter to do a major overhaul.  This was the moment I realized something had to be done (taken last November, and chronicled here: http://festoolownersgroup.com/workshops-and-mobile-vehicle-based-shops/ideas-for-shop-reorganization/msg356395/#msg356395):

223009-0

I had just returned from an installation, and realized with disgust that I could barely navigate the space.  It was like playing a game of Tetris every time I wanted to access a tool or perform some operation.

My needs: Since I have the driveway, I will continue to do most of my cutting out there (miter saw, router table and table saw are all mobile), but I want the space to be as organized as possible, and have the option to do cutting inside when the need arises.  I mostly work on my own projects, but a few times a year I do art installations -- most of the work is done on-site, but there's usually a fair bit of prep work to do at home base, and so I need to have the capacity to temporarily store and process large amounts of lumber.

So here's what I've done so far.

I don't have a huge amount of hand tools, and so I realized they could be organized and stored more efficiently in a cabinet above the workbench with a hybrid pegboard construction (documented here: http://festoolownersgroup.com/workshops-and-mobile-vehicle-based-shops/shop-cabinet/msg399394/#msg399394):

223011-1

I realize I'm working a bit backwards by not re-doing the workbench first, but I'm still figuring out what I want for that, so the current bench is just a placeholder for what will eventually take its place.

 In the meantime, I've gone to work clearing out the back to free up storage and make space for a chaos cabinet.  I redid and expanded the cordless tool storage station, and moved it to the right of the workbench:

223013-2

The loft on my side of the garage had accumulated 15 years of crap, and so I did a ruthless round of sorting and trashing over the weekend (thanks NYC Dept. of Sanitation!).  It's amazing how much junk one holds onto.  This allowed me to actually take out the back part of the loft:

223017-3

223019-4

223021-5

With the back loft out, it now became possible to use the front loft space more efficiently.  This is what it looked like after I had cleared all the junk:

223023-6

Now I have separate compartments space for long wide boards and guide rails, 2x4s and the long extension ladder, long narrow boards, and moulding/miscellaneous long pieces:

223025-7

223027-8

Since I moved the cordless tool storage station, I could now move the drill press over to the left side of the bench, and thus take it off the back wall:

223015-9

I then simplified the wood storage on the left, designating it as a space for scraps under 4ft, but keeping the space underneath for sheet good storage:

223029-10

223031-11

I can't help but feel like the old configuration is still exerting some influence over this redesign of the scrap storage, and that there might be more efficient ways of doing this, but I couldn;t think of any that would still allow me to put 4x8 sheets underneath.

So this is what the back wall of the shop now looks like, ready to receive a Chaos Wall:

223033-12

I've got my LR32 and am now working out the design of the Chaos Cabinet/Sys-ports, which I will embark on as soon as I pick up the drawer slides.  More to come...

Edward,
Wow, have you been busy and productive!  I really like your thought process.  Things are really shaping up.  I can't wait to see your chaos wall evolve.  Thank you for sharing all this.

Where did your table saw go?  Are you keeping it next to band saw at the front?

Thanks, Mike A.

I like that cordless tool rack... need to build one of those so my drills don't need to waste a bunch of space in my rolling tool box.  Anything unusual about the once you built you can't see in the picture?  Seems pretty straight forward.

Naw, the cordless tool storage piece that's to the right of that, with the hanging drills, M12 stuff, and chargers on top.

Got it.  Yeah, really straight forward.  Some people do variations where they use what looks like PVC, which looks kind of cool:

Since I had a lot of non-drill cordless items, I just went with the more simple slot design that I also use for the clamp racks

The first thing I would do would be to insulate.  Maybe it's just me but I'm a hobbyist and if I can't be comfortable it wouldn't be fun.  But if you can enjoy cutting wood in your driveway in the winter, more power to you.

I've finished the first part of the chaos wall build, the systainer section.  Since I have such a tall space, and it will be irregular lengths due to the roof slope, I decided to break it up into two sections with separate building processes: systainer storage on the bottom, and then later on more traditional cabinets/shelves on the top.

There were a few trade-offs in choosing the design and hardware:

1) Originally I was thinking of making the wall deep enough for two systainers per shelf.  But doing so would have mandated premium drawer slides, and I was not sure I wanted to sacrifice 28"+ of depth.  Since I relocated the drill press to the side of the workbench, I actually ended up having enough room along the back wall for 4 columns, so I felt like I would be fine just to go with one deep.

2) I settled on 73 3/4" x 72" x 15 1/2" as the size for the systainer storage cabinet (for depth 15 1/4" ply + 1/4"oak cap).  Any deeper and I would have pushed up the materials cost, since I would have only been able to get 2 lengthwise cuts rather than 3 from each sheet.  This meant, though, that I went with...

3) ...14" three-quarter extension epoxy drawer slides.  Got a really good deal on them at less than $2 a pair, but at this size they don't allow me to open the systainers lids fully while they're still on the shelf.  That doesn't seem like a big sacrifice at the moment, but maybe down the road I'll swap out the slides for some pricier 14" metal full extension ones that would allow opening the systainer tops in place.   

As for the build, got to use a full range of tools.  The edging plate for the 1010 makes flush-trimming the oak caps a quick and precise operation:

223440-0

RO150 and RTS400 cleaned the rest of the glue and edges:

223442-1

223444-2

I routed the verticals on every other index hole with the LR32.  Just did the front and back holes (for accepting euro screws), and went with the Centrotec 5mm self-centering bit to fill in the center holes when needed during the actual assembly ($81 -- yikes!  I was in a rush so just went to a local Festool dealer instead of waiting a few days for a Vix or a Snappy to come by mail):

223446-3

For assembly, I went with a combination of dominoes and pocket screws, using the former for purposes of alignment:

223448-4

And the pocket screws for securing the boards once they were in place (for securing the top I just went with screws straight down into the verticals, since this part will eventually be covered with the top half of the shelf):

223450-5

Not quite as slick as the Hafele connectors I guess, but the actual assembly was still pretty quick.  First the 2x4 base leveled with shims:

223456-6

Then started putting up the boards:

223452-7

223454-8

Used two pocket-holed cross pieces per column in the back to maintain a consistent width all the way down the column and also secure the cabinet to the back studs:

223458-9

Here's the case with all the systainers on their shelves --  I left some room for future growth and for slotting in other tools/fasteners/accessories:

223460-10

223462-11

223464-12

I haven't decided how I will do the front edge/lip of the shelves.  I experimented on a few of them with some 1/8" oak scrap I have lying around.  I'm going to sleep on it and get back to work tomorrow.  Thanks again to everyone who answered questions and/or provided encouragement on the project.

Edward,
Terrific build!  Nice way to economize on the amount of material needed. 

Since you did not use the knock down fittings, if you ever have to move this to another location, are you able to unscrew the pocket screws and reuse them?  That's assuming you did not use glue on the dominos.

Whenever (and if) you decide to switch out you runners, erock referenced some economical full extension ones in reply #29 in his thread on making sysports.  He got them off eBay.

Thanks, Mike A.

Wow, that is a good price for the slides.  I may have to swap out sooner than I expected.

I didn't use glue so I have the option of quickly breaking it down and shifting it around.  Sometime in the future I will end up getting the whole garage space, rather than just the current one half allotment, so I will eventually have options for more expansion.  But since that hinges on someone else's mortality, I neither wish for it nor even feel good mentioning it, so we'll just leave it at that.  That's basically the reason -- to respond to a previous comment -- why there's no insulation/finishing in the interior, as it would have been a vain effort to only do it to one side.
   
Just finished up the front edges of the plywood shelves, and am taking a break to play some chess.

I've put up the higher shelving.

Ended up with just two columns.  The one on the left is a fixed shelf -- there seemed to be no point of putting shelf-pin holes since the bottom section was dedicated to house the Leigh D4R, which left only about 12 inches of space in the upper half.  I did put pin holes on the right, though, with the LR32, including a line of holes in the middle in case I wanted to put in a shallow shelf to make room for extra tall objects.  Width of this column is 2 feet.  I ended up not running it the full length of the bottom unit to give a little extra space to ascend the ladder and to pull down long objects from the loft.  I may end up putting doors on the upper unit, but for now I'm going to leave it as is.  I figure that now that everything is up high, there will be less dust accumulation, and what does gather can be quickly vacuumed off.

Construction was the same -- combination of dominoes, pocket screws, and straight screws through the top (no glue):

223855-0

223857-1

I decided to follow the original chaos wall specs more closely on the upper shelves, and so routed a dado for a 5mm backing:

223859-2

Having the right angle chuck was a huge plus for securing the top:

223861-3

Shelf is complete and ready to be filled:

223863-4

Was surprised with how much less stuff I had once it had been sifted through and all organized:

223865-5

View from the front, now with a clear path all the way to the back:

223867-6

Edward,
Wow, that really makes excellent use of your space!  Even though you had to follow the roof line along the top, it appears the extra shelves are stowing a good amount.  Nice work.  You put my own feeble attempts at organization to shame.  LOL!

Now that everything is all stacked up so neatly and more visible, have you given any thought to security issues since this is in a garage with a now clear path to the back wall?

Something I don't understand. You have spent thousands on Festools but decide to cheapen up on your project using 3/4 slides instead of full extension. It's your money and your project and if you're happy I'm happy but I have noticed this with others who buy expensive tools and then won't spend the money on materials to do the job the way they really want but will cut corners to save money. Where is the balance.

Funny you should mention.  My track saw woke me up this morning and started complaining about the fact that I had used scraps of construction grade plywood on a couple of the pull-out shelves, and how his life sucked because he ended up with such a cheap SOB as an owner.  He's now threatening to walk and take the Rotexes with him unless I redo the shelves in QSO, and to make up for the indignity of the slides, he also wants me to swap them all out for the SYS-AZs.

Few more modifications on the shelving.

Added some doors on the left column in order to at least keep the dust off the Leigh Jig and some of the sharpening equipment.  Also added some quick drawers in the systainer section to consolidate some of the loose tools, rather than devote separate small pull out shelves:

224031-0

Used the European cup hinges on the doors -- first time using them, and I like the adjustability:

224033-1

Finished off the doors by turning some leftover cherry for the knobs:

224035-2

Now I'm working on redoing the stand for my lathe, which I should be finished up with tomorrow.

Nice work- like the setup so far.  Very efficient use of the space.

I used the same 14" 3/4 extension glides you did on a custom sys port I built.  It's what I had on hand and I thought they would be fine, but after using them for a few months, they are getting replaced with full extension glides.  I cannot stand not being able to open the lid 90 degrees- drives me nuts sometimes.

Not that often, but when I need it, it really comes through.  I originally got it for this run of crown moulding I had made, and then really put it through its paces on a build I had last Fall where I had to mill 300+ feet of astragal moulding.  I also used it on face frames, but have since switched over to the RTS400 for that.  What other applications do you use it for besides moulding? 


How often do you use your ls 130?  I just got mine a few months back and really really like it. I have found a lot of uses for it of late.

I have used it mainly to refurb about 25 doors in my house. Flat pad works great on the panel faces, and I made up some DIY pads for the details. That combo' with my ETS 150 and RO 90, have made the project a LOT more tolerable!

It is a rock star item if it fits your needs. I wish I could use my profiles on a hand sander sometimes but so far I have just dealt with some occasional dust.

Finished up the lathe stand.

Original one that I bought with the unit was fine and functional, but it created all this dead space due to its center pillar construction:

224089-0

So I decided to modify one of the DIY designs I saw on google images-- one that would be rock solid and provided underneath storage.

Materials were 2x6s and 2x12s, laminated in pairs to be extra strong.  Because much of it was scrap, and a little cupped, I drove in a bunch of screws during the lamination process to secure a tight fit:

224091-1

Planed down the ends:
224099-2

And then used the Carvex to cut notches for the cross beams.  I know the Carvex has gotten some heat lately on the forum, but I was pretty happy with a 3" plumb cut:

224093-3

Attached the legs together with 10mm dominoes and then clamped them up (bottom parts made of the 2x6s were 1.5mm thicker than the 2x12 tops -- decided just to use the domino fence to offset the mortises rather than plane them down to equal size -- the boards were still a little cupped and so it would have required more than just a quick pass through the planer).  Thank god Bessey makes the 50" clamps:

224095-4

224097-5

Joined the two legs with the cross-pieces, secured with 1/2" threaded rods that I drilled out with an extra long speed-bore spade bit, added two cross pieces for more stability, topped it off with Baltic Birch (was 1 inch shy on either side on the ply since I needed to make the full span 62" to give clearance for the bolts securing the lathe to the stand):

224101-6

224103-7

224105-8

Attached the stand to the wall studs and anchored the feet into the concrete for good measure:

224107-9

224109-10

Underneath now have storage for the shop vac and planer:

224111-11

I couldn't resist so I decided to put it to a real test, mounting a blank measuring the full 12" swing:

224113-12 

Good thing I tested it as I had forgotten that the motor had to drop very low when the belt was at the slowest setting, and so I now realized I had to cut a hole in the ply for the motor to sink slightly below table level.  Sounds like a job for the Multi Master:

224115-13

Motor cleared, I was able to turn the blank round, experiencing no extra vibration or rocking in what ended up being a rock solid stand:

224117-14

One more storage improvement.  I wanted to compact the storage of all my spare router bits that don't already have their proper cases, and have the case be both transparent and sealed enough so that I could stick in some dessicants to inhibit rust.  So I milled some narrow maple pieces and cut plexiglass panels to fit inside the dadoed pieces.  Assembled with 4mm dominoes.  Then drilled a bunch of 1/2" and 1/4" holes in a board cut to the size of the case to hold the bits upright and attached it to the bottom of the drawer I'd already made for the router table.  I might be a bit optimistic thinking this will solve the rust problem, but it's certainly better than the previous setup I had of just having them out in the open.

Took my weekend away from the installation to do the workbench, using the Woodrave Template and a Bosch 20mm boring bit that I will never use again due to the burning.

I spent a long time thinking about what the perfect workbench might look like, but then I realized that the perfect workbench was simply one that fir my needs at the moment.  And I can always modify it as my needs change.

My three principles were these:

1. Have space underneath to fit my metal filing cabinets, with enough room from the top of the cabinet to tighten knobs underneath

2. Have space underneath to place the Festool CT

3. Match the length of the existing cabinet I built a few months ago

I'll use the bench largely for sanding and assembly rather than cutting.  I don't do much hand planing so I thought the 3/4 MDF would be good enough.

I put some dadoes in the 5/4 edging and put in Incra T-tracks, and will later add additional dados on top for a T-track along the edge so that I can get some of those auto lock T-track clamps like Rockler makes to supplement the Festool clamping elements when necessary, as well as additional hold down clamps.

Notched the three 4x4s with the Carvex for the 5/4 edging to nest in.  Put one cross piece underneath for additional support, and then secured it to a 2x4 running along the wall.  4x4s are also anchored into the concrete, so the bench is pretty solid.

Put a few coats of Danish oil on the MDF, and will finish it off with some wipe on poly.

Added a few dog holes down the 4x4s for support when I'm doing edge sanding on long boards.

One small space-saving addition.  I'm going to be building a miter saw cart for my Kapex, so I wanted to clear out some wall space for it to park it as close to the wall as possible.  So I took advantage of my low garage ceiling and moved some of the long clamp storage overhead.

Marked off a single piece of plywood with the slots, then ripped it down the middle once they were jigsawed to ensure a mirror image:

230206-0

BTW, I learned that my newly acquired Rockler bench cookies still work well after you accidentally jigsaw them!

I have overhead space now for up to 13 Bessey parallel and long bar clamps -- with the bar side tucked in above the open garage door:

I've been thinking about the design for the extension wing for my Kapex cart, but wanted to test out various sliding and folding solutions before I did something permanent, so I decided to experiment by building an folding outfeed table for my table saw.

I modified a design I found on the internetz so it could integrate with my Incra fence.  Basics of the table are two pieces of MDF or ply that get covered on both sides with laminate, and then edged out with solid wood (poplar in my case).

233660-0

233662-1

233664-2

The mounting "plate" was in two parts.  First was a piece of 5/4 poplar fitted with bolts and the sliding nuts that go in the track on the Incra fence extrusion.  It needed a rabbet at the top to give clearance for the fence to pass.  Screwed into this was another piece of 5/4 poplar, chiseled out to fit over the two central bolt heads of the first board.  This second board has the piano hinge at the bottom attaching it to the table panel.  In order to get the top flush, I predrilled the second piece to the first, and then removed it to hinge it to the panel.

233666-3

233668-4

233670-5

I bought a 48" hinge and cut down approximately 16" with the grinder, and then attached the panel:

233672-6

233674-7

The leg mechanism is just a large sliding dovetail assembly made of plywood and poplar, attached with bolts to two radiused pieces fitted into dadoes I routed into the underside of the panel.  The leg slides until it fits into a wooden rest attached near the bottom of the table saw cabinet.  I cut up some metal shims with the grinder and attached them to the bottom of the sliding leg and the rest to firm up the assembly and avoid and changes in the level of the table due to wood degradation:

233676-8

After leveling out the top and marking the position, the leg got locked into place with two sliding bolts.

233678-9

Total surface area of the extension is 32x28, which gives me almost 5 feet of depth from the front of the saw to the drop off at the back of the extension.  I realize now that I could have even gotten away with less depth on the extension -- the Jessem stock guides I have on my fence act as a great hold down to keep pieces from tipping off too soon.  But the extension will definitely come in handy when I'm doing long rips of 8/4 material or other heavy stock.

I just realized I have put more money into accessories and modifications for the table saw then I originally spent on the saw itself.  It's been worth it, though, as I now have 100% confidence in the tool.

Small improvement to my rail storage, which had simply involved stacking them on top of one another above the workbench cabinet. It worked fine, but obviously, if I needed to grab the 75" rail, I had to take all the others down first

243506-0

So I took some small blocks of 8/4 white oak i had lying around and jigsawed some slots

243508-1

Realized as I was attaching them that I only needed two, since the longest rail remains on the bottom. They are much more accessible now

I thought I had built in enough room for growth when I redid the cabinets, but over the past year my systainers have spilled over, both due to new Festool acquisitions and because I've been systainerizing my other tools.  Despite a concerted effort to weed out some of my older, no longer frequently used tools through resale or donation, it was starting to get crowded on the shop floor, with the sys-roll serving as an ad hoc systainer storage unit:

264909-0

264911-1

The cabinets above the systainer ports were similarly stuffed to the gills:

264913-2

So I decided to squeeze a few more square feet out of the back cabinet and add some more systainer ports without sacrificing too much cabinet space.  Fortunately I had built everything using only dominoes for alignment and pocket hole screws as fasteners, so it was really simple to dismantle the top unit:

264915-3

I was able to trim and recycle most of this material, though I did have to get one more sheet of red oak ply and edge it with red oak hardwood to match.  I should note here that the HKC 55 was a real champ on this project -- the longer 670 rail was perfect for handling the 15 1/2" wide material out of which the cabinet is made.

With everything temporarily pulled out of the cabinets and on the shop floor, I was having flashbacks to the chaos that had prompted me to do the original reorganization:

264923-4

With the top cabinets disassembled, I took the opportunity to trim, notch and fortify the studs on the back gable -- the cabinet itself is plumb because of the base I built, but variations in the concrete floor and presumably the back wall made the cabinet butt into into the framing materials:

264917-5

264919-6
 
I again dominoed and pocket holed everything -- some I was able to do on the floor:

264921-7

But a lot was done in situ perched on a ladder.  So for the systainer port expansion, I only had to make the top horizontal shelf and the dividers -- these were then just secured in place to the top of the existing systainer bay with dominoes and pocket screws:

264925-8

264927-9

End result gave me room for the equivalent of another four Sys-5's with headroom to spare for handles or stacks of multiple systainers:
 
264929-10

The new cabinet configuration on the upper portion is roughly the same amount of square footage as before -- I didn't measure the difference, but I've been able to put (almost) everything back that was up there, and also took the opportunity to weed out a few more items that were just collecting dust:

264931-11

264933-12

The cabinet is, however, 11 feet tall now, and so I am going to redo the 2x4 ladder to give me a few more feet so I'm not stretching above my head when I have to grab stuff from the very top.

As you can see, I've been able to squeeze just about every last square inch out of that back wall.

Looks like there is still a triangle about half way up the ceiling that you could use for maybe a #3 systainer.

I have this image of a systainer library with a rolling library ladder along the wall for reaching the high stuff.  It would only take a few tweaks to your 2x4 ladder.

On the ridiculous extreme, perhaps a "soda vending machine" mechanism that moves in two dimensions along the wall to retrieve the systainer that you want.  Then you just tell Alexa that you want systainer D-7 that's 9 feet up, and wallah!

What comes in a Systainer with the carry handle mounted on the front?
Don't believe I have ever seen a Systainer with the handle on the front.

Middle column, half way down.

@Bob D.  It's an add-on accessory: https://www.amazon.com/Festool-497856-Auxiliary-Handle-Systainer/dp/B003ZX7UJS

Works for the smaller systainers when you want to carry them like a briefcase in a situation where you're only transporting a few to a job and don't need a sys roll or sys cart.

Oh, cool, mounts right in the label slots.

Very nice and smart thinking on Festools part.

A Question for my ignorance....

You used the LR-32 to pre drill holes to mount the drawer slides for the systainers, is this correct?

@Neal W That's right.  I only bothered to drill two columns of holes though, and used the 5mm vix bit to bore the center hole for the slides as needed.
