Welcome

There are a bunch of knowledgeable folks here. It would be easier for others to comment if we knew how small is small?
I have at times worked in 8X10 spaces and I'm sure others have also. I found that the key to the whole thing is wheels on all benches, and stationary power tools (Huh? wheels on stationary stuff. That don't sound right, LOL). Anyway, in addition to wheels on just about anything big, use every inch of wall space for shallow cabinits and hang up tools on peg boards or whatever.

BTW, where in La. are you. I fly offshore from Houma.


Regards

Tony B

Welcome to the forum.
I have seen an upright cabinet with slide in shelves that you bolt each of your shop tools onto. Then there is one work station that each one of the tools drop into to be used. This way you can have 4 or 5 tools stored in one upright cabinet.

What part of La are you in? I am north of Lake Charles
