i made a video showing my assembly area and in particular my latest workbench and the adaptations i have made since.
i am relatively shy, so i didn’t go through such a torture for nothing :) as the video is an entry for a contest held by festool belgium, the one with the most youtube votes wins €1000 in tools.

anyway, i hope my english isn’t too bad and if you liked it and have a youtube account then i would really appreciate a vote!

nice tour and a very functional looking workbench you got there. was nice to see the Akeda dovetail jig as the trend dc400.

Nice shop! I like how you built your workbench around your Festools. Thanks for sharing.

thank you for the comments and votes,

@Moron (no offense, it’s your name!) indeed my router table sits on wheels, it’s strange how i never posted a project about it, but i don’t see it as finished yet as many details about it became temporarily permanent
without the wheels it would be kind of useless sitting in a corner like that.

Very nice shop Greedo. I have never seen so many Festools in one place. :) I really like the workbench idea.

Wonderful shop you have.
Where do you cut (saw).
I have the Festool plungesaw and love it with the MFT3 table.
I must say I would not trade my MFT table for any workbench, but I would like to have a heavy workbench or like you a fixed one also.
Wonderful shop!
Best thoughts,
Mads

Mads, the area shown in the vid is “cut off” from my workshop, it’s insulated so i can heat it during the winter.
The big stationary tools are on the other side.

the good news is that as my video was one of the first 10 entries i recieved a festool worklight already.
