Looks really good. So the upper left storage is for Systainers and the Fastenal boxes? You could get rid of the fastenal boxes to keep the width of those shelves systainer size and get a new Sortainer Sys 4. Really awesome. Hard to believe how much stuff you can fit in it.

With the hijack and a foot injury, I spent some time really thinking about the things that either don't currently have a home or needed a better one. I put the results of that thought process in Sketchup and this is what I think I've settled on:
I cut down on the number of systainers stored, at least at first, and keep the good upper storage I put in before. I increased the width of the upper section to accommodate the Fastenal compartment boxes I enjoy as well. Otherwise it's adjustable shelves, and at least one of the cabinets will have a door to help cut down on dust accumulation from the miter saw. The wood rack moves over to the right side of the miter, as does the jointer. For the amount it gets used, I can stand to move the MFT when the time comes.
If it turns out I need more lower storage and that space isn't otherwise used, I can add another bank of drawers or anything else between the planer cart and the systainer drawers.
Interesting... I think I thought the beadlock tenons would fit more snugly in the mortise than that.I'll have to experiment with doing them with a router and my own stock... but that doesn't seem like it would be any less work than just doing a standard M&T, either.
Maybe I'll hold off for a while... if I need alignment I've always got my biscuit joiner and if I need something fast I can always just use dowels... and then I'll stick to traditional joinery for the rest.
Thanks for educating me, gentlemen!
Don't get me wrong. Beadlock and dowel joints are quite stout. When you start comparing a dowel joint that fails around 750lbs to a beadlock that fails around 830 lbs to a floating tenon that fails around 1400 lbs you have to ask; will I ever put 800 lbs of force on that joint!?! Look how much cope and stick cabinetry is in kitchens all over the country and they fail at around 320 lbs.
One that surprised me was that a half-lap was stronger than a bridal joint. I would have thought the captured open tenon would be stronger but, it seems the thicker material of a half lap wins. Festoolians reel seeing dominos holding only a little better than biscuits but, not as good as pocket screws.with glue.
I have also seen tests where epoxy was substituted for PVA glue. The joints where the connection points failed did better but, most joints fail at the surrounding material. The more seamless that connection, the more stress is transferred away from the joint and into the balance of the material.
You need to be a subscriber for this link but, there are other tests out there on the internet that are similar. I try not to go too weird-science on this stuff. There are plenty of joints, some stronger or weaker than each other, that are just fine for what we're doing.
