Well, all I can really say is to give yourself enough room fore and aft of the table saw, the jointer, and the planer. Most others use smaller sized stock on, but these are the ones which cut the long stuff. I like my table saw in the center of a long 'aisle', with my jointer, drill press, and router table against the nearest wall, in the same lengthwise direction, but about 4'-5' away from the TS. To the other side of the TS, I have, about 6' away, my bandsaw, and a couple of tool cabinets, backed up against my lathe, and bench grinder. My planer is on wheels, which is convenient since I am occasionally planing stock up to 20' long. I have a workbench 5' beyond the TS outfeed end, then another off to the side of that one. Two walls are taken up with wood storage, one solid lumber, the other ply.
