Unless you are a wealthy hobbyist, size and price of equipment are dependent on volume of work.
I love sliding saws, but they aren't cheap.
Work flow dynamics in any size shop is a big factor to me.
Ideally an overhead door for raw materials with racks.
Then parts prep area, planer, molder, shaper, sanding, etc.,
Then assembly tables and tools area.
Then finishing area at other end with dust barrier and exit overhead door for finished product.
Entire shop with compressed air fittings and 100-220V outlets every 20 or so feet, good ventilation, high ceilings, I could go on and on.
