Jason – think about the kind of woodworking you want to do and work it out in your head. If your going to use a table saw, it may be the workhorse of you shop so make sure you have room for cutting and ripping long boards. Plan a dust system and how to connect it. Are you going to have a router table etc…

I have a small 24X24 ft shop with 2 posts in the center. It’s more like a cave with short ceiling. What I did, I spent a lot of time just sitting in it listening to music and thinking about my shop. And I moved my stool around in different locations envisioning how I could incorporate all my tools. I came up with a fair idea and I’ve been improving since.

Rule #1 – you will change your set up a few times over the years so don’t stress over it!
