The photo below is of my workbench in the shop. It doesn't have a lot of room on it at the moment, but I can access my metal cutting bandsaw, a small vice, and three rotary flex-shaft tools without ever leaving my chair.
To my right are two drill presses and a shop built air compressor.
The top of the workbench is made from laminated fir 2x4's and can take a lot of abuse!
Step 1: Grinders and saws
The wood cutting bandsaw is on wheels, so I can roll it forward to use it.
The precision disc sander is shop-made, and is handy for flattening objects.
