I would say that it really depends on the work you do. if you do boxes – than 6” might be ideal, if you do furniture (as your user id suggest) it depends on what size furniture you make most. do you do lots of panels? what sizes? do you do mostly carcass construction? what sizes?

I find that I mostly use 6” for smaller parts, and 18”/24” for everything else. I find the 18”/24” most flexible as they are short enough to be light weight to handle, but still have a good reach for carcass construction most of the time. the 18” is a bit too short at times. the 24” mostly fits the bill.
