Thanks fro the reply Paul.

I’m new to woodworking, and it’s something I do for enjoyment and not for money. I’ve made things before (I’ve built probably 2-dozen poker tables) but now I have some entry-level bench tools that are making a big difference for me.

Most of the tools will be stationary, but I want to have wheeled combination table saw/router/assembly table. The rest will be stationary on workbenches.

Maybe resilient vinyl plank flooring would be good? It’s common in a commerical setting—it gives the look of wood, with commercial durability. I remember going to a Texas de Brazil restaurant and noticing the flooring, it looked like wood but it was resilient vinyl planks.

My sub-floor is concrete, so maybe another option is to put in laminate/wood flooring througout the rest of the condo, and just leave the concrete sub-floor and put down some hard rubber gym flooring. I think the resilient vinyl planks would be similar to the gym flooring, but without the thickness.
