I would have about 54”-60” of clearance underneath that shelf. The working surfaces of all of the other tools (sander, router, scroll saw) aside from the mortiser could be as close to that as their own fence systems allow (~6” in most cases). The mortiser working surface would be in the 34” range which is about the same as placing it on top of my existing benches.

I do think the working angle for the mitre saw could be a bit awkward so I’ll have to test that out first. Definitely want to keep things safe and accurate.
