Thanks Armand.

This is worth a look.
Some ideas I had not thought about like the hanging hooks and rods.

I would like to add that good North light from your left is helpful (I am right handed). Daylight bulbs help as well.

Have fun.

I would add magnetic tool bars. I have three of them. Two on the rear wall of my painting table and one, for large files and saws on the side.

I picked them up at Harbor Freight years ago and use them all the time. Especially good for finding the right file quickly.
