After looking at a lot of shops on this web site and doing an expansion on mine, I don’t think that size really matters. I went thru every nut and bolt and tool I own when reorganizing my shop. I found that I had six hammers, 35 screw drivers four sets of chisels, too many sets of lights and a ton of other crap I don’t need. The Goodwill, the recycling center and my wall space all benefited from my slimming down. DBHost is right that peg boards are just clutter catchers. All of my tools (wrenches, plyers, screwdrivers, sockets, hammers etc) are now in two stackable tool boxes and I have more wall space for cabinets to store glue, paint, sandpaper etc. I see some workshops that have more lumber stacked up than they do at the lumber yard. I am pretty sure the wood at the bottom of many of those stacks hasn’t been touched in years. I don’t use lumber racks because they just take up too much space. This is just me and every space and needs are different. Ya the collapsable outfeed table on my TS has helped out a bunch too…......
