That’s a lot of weight on a shelf. Might need to be wider than you’re typical 12’-18’ shelving unit.

What kind of space is ‘small?’ Pictures are always a good thing. Your ‘planer’ is a lunch-box type, or ?

Router tables are usually at least 18” wide, I can see that and the planer on one of those rotating shelf
setups, but a miter saw usually needs infeed and outfeed room, I think you will need at least two shelf
or table rigs to do this right.

I think you need a table or workbench / cart on wheels, more than a shelf to safely store them on : )

You may want to consider rolling workstations with storage for accessories. With shelves things seem to get misplaced.
