I’ve been thinking about something similar I have for a spot in my shop, dead space that isn’t easily accessed, but no one wants to just “write it off” as not being usable. For me, in my 12×24 shop, I have my table saw pretty much in the center, not enough room to fully utilize a set of 50” rails for the saw, so I have 30” of cross cut capacity, but I end up with about your same 22” of dead space on the right wall of the shop. I don’t want anything stacked up there, don’t want to interfere with either the table saw use, nor the miter saw or router table that are on that right hand wall, so I’ve been thinking about engineering some sort of hydraulic lift system so I could have storage for a few heavy items like seldom used parts bins that would store underneath a shelf or table top, then when wanting access, having a lift system that would bring up the 30” or so long unit that would be loaded with small parts bins, after accessing them, they then would lower back down into a storage mode. Not sure how to achieve this just yet, throwing it out there for the much more mechanically inclined to offer suggestions. Hopefully, you will get some good suggestions that I can incorporate as well, good luck.
