As expected, the LJ community does not disappoint! Thanks to all! MJ; Yes, storage is critical! Also taking power hand tools out of their cases and keeping them easily accessible. To paraphrase Adam Savage, ‘Drawers (and cases) are where tools go to die’. Of course there are some exceptions. I was thinking a good size shelf space under the bench is key. I too, have long boards up on the wall and have just constructed a roll around cart for sheet goods and boards of various lengths, widths and species. Actually based on an idea I found here! The garage will not house a car! My ‘boss’ agrees. GR8; YES WHEELS! Jay, Thanks for the heads up on the Grizzly Planner and as far as casters go, I’ve been pondering heavy duty of course, but with plunge-type door stops added. I believe they’re a Trimco item. Gotta ask my stagehand buddies. 6’ looks more feasible At the moment, I’m on the fence as to rolling or fixed. I suppose build it as fixed first and see what transpires.
