System Workshop Build
« on: March 26, 2018, 12:58 PM »
My tool collection has grown past my current setup and storage capacity. I have also been thinking about redoing my work flow and Timothy Wilmots System workshop fit the bill. So I have begun adapting it to my workshop. First up is my workbench and adding a mitersaw station. I am currently about 85% complete. I have to make the top drawers and get the timber this weekend for the front dog/clamping system. Hope you enjoy. Cabinets are next.

The Before:


Making the sysdrawers and cabinet carcass:
















Assembly:




Worktop laminating with HPL top:




Top and miter saw installed (need to make the front track and dog mounting system):

Looks nice. Sometime in the near future I’m going to try and add my systainer in some existing garage cabinets. Unfortunately they are cheaply made.

Really looks great. I've been thinking about adapting Timothy's system to my shop. Will you put upper cabs above the miter station?

Those look really nice.  Quite a transformation.  I like the drawer bottoms.  Had seen Timothy’s videos but never noticed the details in design.

Looking forward to seeing more as you progress.

Very nice, clean and well organized. Are you going to add a extension fence to the miter saw?

At some point, first will be the tall systainer floor cabinets. Going to do two pods with a work surface in between. Then put wood storage cubbies behind them.

Yes. I just purchased the dominofix jig and will add a 20mm grid. Then use the holes to set up a grid. I’m eying those new RUWI hold downs for rail.

Busy weekend but I managed to get, mill up some ash, and machine the grooves for the t-track.



Test fit on bench:

Thanks! It is just cheap engineered flooring. Because its in the basement, when I finished the room, I wired it as a "media room" that so happened to have 220V... its a slick when it gets alot of dust on it from the table saw. However, it makes for super easy clean up and is a nice thermal break from the concrete.

Formica plant is in Cincinnati. My wife's father worked there and I just picked it up.

Been working on the vertical work hold down/dog rails:

Made a jig to accurately/repeatably index the domino for the dog supports:


Indexing:






I made a jig for the making repeatable thru mortises with the domino as the 500 will not reach thru in one pass. I used the front dog slots to index on the jig. Then use the Domino to mortise from both sides.







It was really nice outside so I had a cold one.


Turned out really nice:
