Monty I’m sure those four daughters keep you pretty busy! At least with 1100 sq.ft. you have the potential to do whatever you want.
Ian Maybe you could make a bench with a hinged double top that could fold out when in use or maybe rest vertically against the wall. Probably not a good solution, but you might be able to come up with something. Maybe there are some good ideas on the net. I am probably luckier than many because my shop is a dedicated enclosed space and I can heat it in the winter.
