I hope I explained that enough for you guys to understand and thanks for your help.

Mike, I look at that line coming in from the top right and see transfer table and an engine shed. Fits in with your theme also. You could cut the engine shed in half and make it twice as wide and save space. Just my 2 cents worth.

Not too sure about a transfer table just yet. I just might keep the 24"X104" and call it a day. Besides I made the bench work in two pieces and can connect them when every I need to.
