Everything on wheels that you can. I've got all my stuff on mobile
stands except for the DP. Everything else is movable, and that's for a
2 car garage shop. You can NEVER have enough space, so try to utilize
all the walls and some of the ceiling areas for storage. Put in plenty
of 110 & 220 outlets and enough light fixtures that you can see at all
workstations without shadows. Try to arrange the equipment for the most
logical workflow and capitalize on the large door opening for long
lumber operations. Get as many roller stands as you can afford. I have
5 or 6, plus an outfeed table for my TS. The roller stands can be used
with the jointer, planer, router table, and TS. They are too short to
work with my Powermatic BS, as it has a very high table.
Get some graph paper and cut out the shapes of your equipment and
visualize the space needed around them for you AND the work.
