Wow Frank Flat top city. How many benches do you have permanently set up? When I get back into a shop which I hope will be bigger than my last shop. "Your shop size would be a palace" I'll have 1 bench, 1 assembly table, 1 out-feed table for the table saw [ & a wall mounted spring loaded pile-it bench close to the entry door when filled to a predetermined limit it will fold down dumping everything on the floor to be picked up & put away 25 lb limit ] the crap doesn't pile to high this way you see & it falls in the doorway so it has to be picked up. The assembly table will be a light duty torsion box on top of notched plywood support pieces that slip together like this + that come apart & everything hangs on the wall when not in use. I know you must have some reason for the DC to be where is. I would have put it in the far back corner opposite the wood stove if there is enough room. I've always found that having the band-saw within a few steps of the bench to be very handy. Also my preference is to have the table-saw, planer & jointer all running in the same direction for very good reasons.You have 154 sq. ft. more shop space than I had in my old shop & less tools & less room to turn around, This proves that the more space we have the less room we'll have to actually work in because of what we try to pack into the area. How high are your ceilings? A shelf around the perimeter 24" deep & 1' or more down from the ceiling will store a lot of stuff .
