Sounds like a plan, depends on height of tablesaw, and whether u use power or handtools on tour bench from my understanding.

Reel or real?
Do ya want to make the outfeed double/triple for all machines?
Sounds like a good selection of power tools. Just help us understand what you want.

I made a small 2’ X 4’ outfeed table using plywood ‘L’ legs and solid code top turned longways coming off saw. I took the parts from an old Black and Decker Work Mate and mounted to one end to serve kind of like a tail vase, mounted an el-cheapo Bessey vise one side closest to saw. This actually arranged the vises like a lefty workbench but I didn’t realize it when I set it up.

I also put my Triton router on a Rockler aluminum plate in middle of it.

My shop is similar sized to yours (13X24) and this little table works great for me. I lay a piece of luan over top when gluing or finishing to protect the top and router.

I have a narrow, full width fixed outfeed support built onto back of saw and placed the outfeed table/workbench/router table about 16” away from saw. This lets me get around all 4 sides of table when assembly/finishing projects. I’m going to make a small “bridge” to span this space for can be easily set in place when needed. Probably use luan with some 1X3 stifiners on underside and some type of cleats to hold it on place and level to saw/table. Then, when I need to get all around table, I’ll just remove the bridge. I tried moving table back and forth and that got old :)

Every flat surface in my shop eventually ends up doubling as a work bench.

sgv, look at my shop vid. I use my workbench as my outfeed table and really like it. I raised my tablesaw just above the bench so the miter gauge/sled runners would clear the tabletop as I didn’t want to route slots in my bench. Works well for me.

I have almost the same tools and work in a one car garage. Check out my work bench/outfeed table/assy table. It is the only thing level in the shop (besides the table saw).

Hope you get some ideas that help.

The most safe way for me to insure work bench area is to disassemble it after use or it becomes a shelf full of ???..well things you know.
