The first question I would have is will the shop be climate controlled? If not, I heartily suggest you consider building a bench room which is insulated and air conditioned. This was the best thing I ever did for my ww’ing. No more rusty hand tools and I keep my project wood in there so it stabilizes better. Of course, this depends on your climate the type of ww’ing you do.

I think you’re best bet is keep all the noisy machines (planer, jointer, DC) in one area or even a separate room.

A separate lumber storage room is also nice to have.

The size of the shop is largely going to be dictated by the machines and large footprints like TS/outfeed, assembly tables, benches, etc.

FWIW, my shop is 34 X 48 and is too small. :-)

Once you get it done, I would consider it a woodworking shop, not a storage area or place to do oil changes.
