Another large MFT-ish build and my 'shop'
« on: November 15, 2020, 09:05 PM »
I thought I'd share my MFT build. And some pictures from my shop - plenty of Festool :)

My MFT top is 42" wide by 92" long. It's sitting on 8020 aluminum extrusions - the 15 series, double tall around the edges and single tall underneath for support. It's support by two adjustable height tables from Home Depot. Under the table is where I keep slabs for upcoming builds.

I just bought the Woodpecker Routing Sled Pro. I have it attached to the sides of the 15 series. It an be completely removed so I can use the top for other work.

My 'shop' such as it is is a standard 2 car garage where I park by my car and motorcycle. I've managed to squeeze space everywhere. The cabinets are a mix of Ikea, Craftsman, and Husky (Home Depot). Most things are portable or on wheels so I can move it around and then put it back so I can get my car back in. There's two overhead electrical cord reels, a heater, air compressor, compressor hose reel, and a winch on the ceiling if I need it.

Just curious how the dust collection works on your WP router sled with a vac .. or .. do you use a larger dust collection system?  I'm building my own sled from series 15 t-slots and incorporating dc ports into the base .. just not sure if I'll add one or two (like the WP).

I used the Woodpecker sled for the first time last night. Overall works well, but the dust collection with the Festool Dust Extractor leaves a lot to be desired. Good luck.

You have to pull the Sytainers completely out of the cabinet to get inside them? That may be ok for taking them out in the field, but seems inefficient in the shop itself?

Where did you find the Dewalt systainer typ boxes? Do they stack with the Festool ones? I’m building out my trailer for on-site installs and if they can be incorporated together that would be a game changer. Great job btw with the space. Love your mft table!

Zooming at them, the yellow ones are Mirka systainers, the anthracite ones come from Tanos. The black latches complete the look nicely!
