Here is a complete woodworking set-up in less than 4 square metres. It comprises of a saw table with outfeed table, a router table, a reversible fence, a router mill gantry (with a 1/2" Trend router) for flattening large boards or slabs and a 9-drawer tool storage cabinet.
The fence is reversible by way of unlocking two mag-switches; it only takes a few seconds to lift the fence off and turn it around. One side is for the saw table and the other side is for the router. There is a gang of electrical sockets in front of the router table and another behind the outfeed table. These are handy for plugging in various power tools. I also have a Cross-cut Sled for the saw table (last picture) . The outfeed table also doubles as a work surface and assembly table. Two of the tool drawers are shown open and each drawer is labelled so I know where everything is. Since I built this set-up I have found that I don't mislay my hand tools as I often did before and the extra work surface has been more useful than I ever imagined it would. It means my main work bench is less cluttered as I don't have to keep pushing stuff to one side to allow for assembly.
Another gorgeous bit of work! Your Woodworking Center is the 'Tool of the Week'!

Yes, that's exactly what it is. I worked in construction for 40 years before I retired; we used to keep plans and blueprints in the cabinet. When I closed up
my office I took it home. It works great for storing and organizing hand tools.
