I started making greenland kayak paddles for myself and a local kayak retailer. This peaked my interest in wood working. I thought I would start to organize my 2 car garage into a workshop that would still allow me to park 2 cars in there. I have a Ridgid TS3612 table saw ($300 used), Porter Cable 14" band saw ($399 new), Craftsman 10" miter saw (New cheap on sale), Freud FT2200 router (New, free from brother), and various power and hand tools. I hope to add a Dewalt 735 planer, a 4x36 belt sander, and a real dust collection system soon. I made a cantilevered miter saw bench on back wall of "my side" of the garage. I originally had a fold-down version on "her-side" but that didn't fly. I cantilevered the bench to allow me to drag stuff in and out from underneath of it and not be limited by a cabinet. After building the bench I added 2 supports to the saw section just because. The 2 lumber shelves above the bench are also cantilevered off of the wall studs. It is kinda crude but it works. I tend to build first and design, ahh, rather rebuild or modify second. The table saw and band saw can stay where they are unless I am cutting bigger sheets on the table saw.
