If the title got your attention, you have a small workshop. If you want to share go to my home page and check out my one car garage and this replaces the radial arm saw spot and some other tools. ( read my home page ). My goal here was to have a stand for 4 tools—-grinder on top held with a c clamp, scroll saw ( about shoulder height shelf ), planer on main shelf. the lowest shelf was for the miter saw but I misjudged the size so it is the kreg jig kit and jig mounted on a board and extra drill. The main white stand I had was a metal stand with castors from a second hand store and I had a 2x top on it so I planned and designed two frames of 2x to make the sides and a top shelf. The middle shelf is 3/4 but the scroll saw has its own board and a box of blades. The 1/4 inch pegboard did strength and a few accessories. The planer has its own board and dust chute still attached ready to slide out, waist high,easy on the lifting. Next to this is my router table, made with a sink cut out top and another sink cut out made fence.. The PLAN….the router table as needed will become the work station for scroll saw and planing. I had to give up on the Miter saw there but I almost had that worked out and it would have been great. In a small shop or large you still only use these few tools one at a time and for short periods of time. If needed any of them could go on the workbench in the center of the shop, which is 29×60. There are other plan ideas out that show build a whole stand from the base up but I saw the router table usually open or stacked with a few boards. Hopefully now I won’t. And both are on casters and separate so I can move them as needed.
